‘Humans must become cyborgs to stay relevant’, aldus Elon Musk.

Is ‘versmelting met technologie’ devolgende fase voor ons als mens? Biohacking to the future is een verwonderavond over geïmplanteerde chips, robotisering en cyborgs, met presentaties en gesprek, onder leiding van Nederlands bekendste biohacker, Peter Joosten.

Let op: Deze avond stond aanvankelijk gepland op 28 oktober maar is door de reisbeperkingen voor onze gasten (als gevolg van corona) verplaatst naar 31 maart. Een deel van de avond is Engels gesproken.

 

Neil Harbisson

Neil Harbisson is a Catalan-raised, British-born contemporary artist and cyborg activist best known for having an antenna implanted in his skull and for being officially recognised as a cyborg by a government. The antenna allows him to perceive visible and invisible colours via audible vibrations in his skull including infrareds and ultraviolets as well as receive colours from space, images, videos, music or phone calls directly into his head via internet connection. Harbisson identifies himself both as a cyborg; he feels he is technology, and as a transpecies; he no longer feels 100% human. His artwork explores identity, human perception, the connection between sight and sound and the use of artistic expression via new sensory inputs. In 2010 he co­-founded the Cyborg Foundation with Moon Ribas, an international organisation that aims to help humans become cyborgs, defend cyborg rights and promote cyborg art. In 2017 he co-founded the Transpecies Society, an association that gives voice to people with non-human identities, defends the freedom of self-design and offers the creation of new senses and new organs in community.
