X-ray is a well-known metaphor for seeing something through and revealing the true hidden nature of things, but there is another technology which has the same meaning and could be used in an artwork without harming anyone — infrared thermography.

Also, I have found interesting experiment with this technology:
That is how I have got the idea to place thermal cameras and projectors on the opposite walls of a room, so we can project the thermal picture of the people inside on them in real-time. In this way, we can visualise the invisible ability of surveillance to see everything.
