In the popular Dan Brown story, The Da Vinci Code, a character named Silas practices corporal mortification (wears a metal cilice and flogs himself) to “cleanse” his spirit. This piece of clothing reminds me of that but, without the eternal damnation part. Kristin O'Friel, a student at the NYU art school, has designed a corset to tighten as its carbon dioxide sensors detect higher levels of the gas - reminding the wearer of our impact on the air we breath.

Implications - The Co2 Corset by Kristin O’Friel slims the figure by pinching the waist. This corset is breathable and can be worn in a variety of temperatures.
