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. Designed by Xuedi Chen & Pedro G. C. Oliveira.
"A server and mobile app were built to collect Xuedi, the designer's geolocation data over time to use as the basis for a personalized 3D printed flexible mesh. Using arduino and bluetooth, the app communicates with a layer of reactive displays that reflects the trails of information that she produces. These displays are divided up into patches that represent neighborhoods and change in opacity depending on the wearer's current location. If she is in the NYU neighborhood, that area will be the most active, pulsing, revealing her current location, revealing the fact that her data is being collected and at the same time exposing her skin. As her data emissions are collected, the more transparent and exposed she will become."
