Location:New York, New York
Large Intended Impact Area:Nation
The goal of the Cyborg Arts co-lab was to produce a tangible proof-of-concept artwork that could theoretically be turned into a cyborg sense (such as sight, feeling, etc). The results would be envisioned to be implanted inside the living tissue of a human animal but would only be built as a proof of concept.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
To locate the best participants for the lab, an open call was placed in targeted venues and technology user groups in the New York area proposing a ‘collaboration between artists, technologists, designers, engineers, makers and/or scientists to create and develop technologies that expand human capabilities and perception.’ Three cyborg senses as functional proofs-of-concept emerged from the Cyborg Arts co-lab.
