Perceiving colour as sound

Did you know that the colour red equals a semitone between F and F sharp?

Thats one of the things contempory artist and cyborg Neil Harbisson told us at the award ceremony for Prisad Färg 2015. Harbisson was born completely colour blind, but an antenna attached to his head turns colours into audible frequencies. Instead of seeing a world in grayscale, Harbisson can hear a symphony of colours — and even listen to faces and paintings.

Apparently the colours of the Swedish flag are  worth lending an ear to – Harbisson always dresses in colours that are pleasant to listen to.

More about Neil Harbisson

 

Life in the age of the cyborgs

Neil Harbisson a Catalan-raised, British-born contemporary artist and cyborg activist best known for having an antenna implanted in his skull and for being officially recognized as a cyborg by a government, will attend the award ceremony of Prisad Färg 2015 Februari 10 2016 at the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair.

The antenna allows him to perceive visible and invisible colours such as infrareds and ultraviolets via sound waves. The antenna’s internet connection allows him to receive colors from space as well as images, videos, music or phone calls directly into his head via external devices such as mobile phones or satellites.

Harbisson identifies himself as a cyborg, he feels both his mind and body are united to cybernetics. He doesn’t feel he is using or wearing technology, instead he feels he is technology. His artworks investigate the relationship between colour and sound, experiment the boundaries of human perception and explore the use of artistic expression via sensory extensions.
