Nazar ~ Evil Eye

How will the “nazar” be worn in an increasingly digital world?

In many cultures, the wearing "evil eye" (also known as "nazar" in India) is known to ward off evil spirits and bad luck. In recent years, some people are wearing the "nazar" all over their body in forms of clothing and jewelry, becoming a large fashion and cultural trend. In this personal experiment using a machine learning library (mL5.js), I investigate what wearing the "nazar" in the digital world may look like, as technology increasingly continues to take over more of our lives.
