Cyborg Arts


Thursday, September 12, 2019 - 5 p.m.

The artists Neil Harbisson and Moon Ribas featured at this event asked viewers to consider: “What separates human beings from the technology we create and use?” The Catalan-based artists and self-identified cyborgs are influencers in the global cyborg art movement, and use the internet as a sense to fuel perception, understanding, and self expression. Both artists explore the boundaries between cybernetics and organism, defend the freedom of self-design, and believe that embracing our nonhuman entities can bring us closer with the organic worlds of animals, nature, and the cosmos. Together, Ribas and Harbisson advocated on behalf of cyborgs worldwide through the Cyborg Foundation which is committed to the self-actualization of cyborg identities, trans-species rights, and the promotion of cyborg art.
