Progressive exposure


Xuedi Chen’s data driven sculpture slowly exposes the wearer the more they use their mobile phone. Using 3D printing and sheets, whose level of transparency can be controlled, a grid structure wraps around the wearer. A bluetooth link to the users phone monitors the time on the internet, progressively making the sheets, spanning the grid, more and more transparent. This is a physical representation of the increased exposure and vulnerability of users when continually active on the web.


These photos show the transformers needed (I guess) to produce the high voltages required to control the sheets transparency.
