Xuedi Chen brings to attention the x.pose, a corset designed to purposely get more and more transparent depending on how much metadata the user leaves behind on the Internet.

x.pose is a wearable data-driven sculpture that exposes a person's skin as a real-time reflection of the data that the wearer is producing. In the physical realm we can deliberately control which portions our bodies are exposed to the world by covering it with clothing. In the digital realm, we have much less control of what personal aspects we share with the services that connect us. In the digital realm we are naked and vulnerable.
