avatar for Neil Harbisson

Neil Harbisson

Neil Harbisson is a contemporary artist, composer, and cyborg activist, known for his ability to hear and perceive colors outside the ability of human vision. Harbisson was born with achromatopsia, a condition that only allowed him to see in greyscale. In 2003, he took part in the development of the eyeborg, a cybernetic eye permanently attached to his head that allows him to hear the frequencies of colors through bone conduction, including infrareds and ultraviolets. Harbisson started to feel like a cyborg, a union between his organism and cybernetics, when he began to hear colors in his dreams, and, since then, he has created sonochromatic artworks and performances that explore the relationship between color and sound, bodies and cybernetics. In 2010, he co-founded the Cyborg Foundation with Moon Ribas, an international organization that aims to help people become cyborgs, defend cyborg rights, and promote cyborgism as an artistic and social movement.
