BODYIN speculates future body monetization and the alternative form of physical labor. The proposed peripherals harvest body movements, datafy collected information into human signals, and contribute them to external databases and intelligent systems.

This project considers a capitalist valuation of the human body and examines the reciprocal relationships between data-driven labor, daily technology, personal privacy, and body ownership. Simultaneously, BODYIN reflects on nowadays invisible but existing labor absorbed by ever-changing technologies.
