The first section of the exhibition presents physical and biological ways in which we have augmented our minds and bodies. From prosthetics that augment bodily functions to medical interventions that change how we think, this part of the show explores what it means to be a cyborg today.
A key highlight is work by Neil Harbisson, the world’s first human to be officially recognized as a cyborg. Born without the ability to see colour, Harbisson, who will be in Singapore for the opening of the show, wears a prosthetic antenna called “eyeborg” that allows him to hear colour. This antenna has been implanted in his skull since 2003.
Also included are works by star performance artist, Stelarc, plus captivating images and fascinating prototypes by Aimee Mullins, Chris Woebken and many others.
