MFA Photography, Video and Related Media presents a talk by Zach Blasan artist and writer whose practice confronts technologies of capture, security and control. Currently, he is a lecturer in the Department of Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Blas's recent works respond to biometric governmentality and network hegemony. "Facial Weaponization Suite" (2011 – 2014) consists of "collective masks" that cannot be detected as human faces by biometric facial recognition software. "Contra-Internet" (2014 – 2018) explores subversions of and alternatives to the internet and is supported by a 2016 Creative Capital Award in Emerging Fields and the Arts Council England.
