Dress Becomes Increasingly Transparent As Its Wearer Share Personal Data Online
By Dorothy Tan, 13 Jun 2014
Based on the idea that “in the digital realm, we are naked all the time”, designers Xuedi Chen and Pedro G. C. Oliveira has created a sculptural dress that reflects the amount of personal information its wearer share online—the more data is shared, the more transparent it would become.
Made of a 3D-printed, personalized mesh, the dress works with a mobile app that automatically collects Chen’s geolocation data—this set of data is then transmitted to the dress and its “20 hand-cut reactive displays” via Bluetooth, which would then reflect the information accordingly.
For instance, the displays representing the neighborhood that the designer is in would start pulsing, alternating between being opaque and transparent. As more date is collected, more areas of the dress would become see-through.
