x.pose / wearable communication electronics

x.pose
x.pose

In the digital realm, we are naked and vulnerable. x.pose is a wearable data-driven sculpture that changes opacity to expose a person’s skin as a real-time reflection of the data that the wearer is producing.
x.pose is an exploration and commentary on the current internet culture of our generation and the relationship we share with our data. Individuals carrying smartphones and connecting with services such as Google or Facebook have agreed, often without conscious consideration, to policies that grant these service providers explicit rights to harvest and utilize personal data on a massive scale.
