(CCA) | S/S 2029: Jester
Augmented reality in the form of photo filters is already used to obtain and sell facial information to corporations and law enforcement. The Jester look from S/S 2029 envisions queer spectacle that builds on corporate tech without paying for it in data. The iPhone on the front of this headpiece runs an Instagram filter that turns the person looking at it into a flower, so both the performer and the audience are transformed. The phone is internet-disabled so the filter can't transmit facial data back to Instagram, protecting the audience.
