Creating online profiles on social networks like Facebook, Twitter and Google+ make us vulnerable. Our lives our played out in front of millions, privacy restrictions are iffy and our information is being sold to the highest bidder. It is almost as if you were naked in public. To give a more visual picture of what it means to be a part of the post-privacy era, Xuedi Che and Pedro Oliveira have created an incredible project called x.pose. Studying in NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, the two have come up with a wearable, data-driven sculpture made out of flexible, 3D-printed mesh and features layers of reactive screens. Controlled by an open source electronics prototyping platform, the dress is divided into sections that are triggered by social media interactions. For every interaction, a part of the dress turns less opaque, revealing a part of the wearer’s body.
