Moon helps people become cyborgs.

Moon Ribas is a Catalan avant-garde artist and cyborg activist, and the co-founder of the Cyborg Foundation, an international organization that helps people become cyborgs, defends cyborg rights, and promotes cyborg art.

Since 2007, Moon has been experimenting with the union between technology and her body to explore the boundaries of perception and to experience movement in a deeper way. Moon is perhaps best known for developing the Seismic Sense, an online seismic sensor implanted in her feet that allows her to perceive earthquakes taking place anywhere on the planet through vibrations in real time. With this additional sense, Moon is still physically standing on the ground, while being on Earth and in space at the same time. Some of her previous research includes transcendental communication, 360° perception, and the Speedborg.

At the House, Moon will take us to this third place, between human and cyborg identities, and share why it’s time for our bodies to interact with the planet and outer space.
