Neil Harbisson is a cyborg… and an artist whose work blurs the boundary between sight and sound. He has had a sensor implanted into his brain which allows him to hear colour.
In Harbisson’s paintings, red is ‘serene’, whilst violet is ‘savage’. They are difficult to understand in this respect; his visual representations of speeches by Hitler and Martin Luther King are particularly disorientating.
This idea of visual sound and audio colour is an interesting one and adds a new sensory dimension to art connected to technology.
Apps for your brain, anyone?
