Virtual Futures collective with Stelarc and Nina Sellars at the Victoria and Albert Museum Digital Design Weekend. As you can see I am very happy to have found my fellow cyborgs and collaborators.
Yes that is an ear on his arm! That’s Stelarc.
Stelarc is a performance artist who has visually probed and acoustically amplified his body. He has made three films of the inside of his body. Between 1976-1988 he completed 26 body suspension performances with hooks into the skin. He has used medical instruments, prosthetics, robotics, Virtual Reality systems, the Internet and biotechnology to engineer intimate and involuntary interfaces with the body. He explores Alternate Anatomical Architectures with augmented and extended body constructs.
