X.Pose(d)

China- born and Brooklyn- raised/ based Xuedi Chen has designed X.Pose – a “wearable data-driven sculpture that exposes a person’s skin, as a real-time reflection of the data that the wearer is producing”. Everytime data is transmitted and/or shared, a little piece of the design turns from milky white to transparent (making you think twice about how much you choose to share online).

The garment is meant to serve as a reminder of how vulnerable people are (or, rather, can make themselves) in the virtual world. Definitely not something I’d like to wear, considering how much time I spend on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, WordPress & the like – but an ingenious idea, nevertheless!
