Listening to Colors: Life with Extra Senses

November 7, 2013

Neil Harbisson is an artist best known for his ability to hear and perceive colors outside the range of human vision. Neil was born with achromatopsia, a condition that only allows him to see the world in black and white. At the age of 20, he had an electronic eye (‘eyeborg’) installed in his head that allows him to ‘listen’ to colors. In this lecture, Neil talks about his personal relationship with cybernetics and how technology changed his perception of life.
