Beschreibung:

Neil Harbisson, visual artist and composer and choreographer Moon Ribas are the founders of Cyborg Foundation, an international organization that seeks to extend the humans senses by creating cybernetic body extensions, to defend the rights of cyborgs, and promote Cyborgism. Neil and Moon talk about their personal relation with cybernetics, and how technology change their perception of life. Neil Harbisson, became the first person recognized by a government as a cyborg. Harbisson was born with achromatopsia, a condition that only allows him to see the world in black and white. Since he was 20 years, he installed an electronic eye ("eyeborg") into his head that allows him to listen to colours.
