Photograph of three people exploring an exhibition. Two people are stood facing each other over a tabletop. On the table are a selection of object which they are arranging under a camera. In front of them on the gallery wall there are two square projections. On the left is the camera image of the objects they have arranged, a watch, cables against a blue and orange background. On the right is a computer-generated interpretation of their arrangement, abstract white, orange and red shapes.

About your guide

Neil Harbisson

Neil Harbisson is a contemporary artist and cyborg activist. He has an antenna implanted in his skull which allows him to perceive visible and invisible colours via audible vibrations. Neil’s artwork explores identity, human perception, the connection between sight and sound, and the use of artistic expression via new sensory inputs.
