Neil 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.
Brian Buirge & Jason Bacher
Good Fucking Design Advice
Brian and Jason have traveled the world running their foul mouths and preaching what they practice. They love to share their story, sense of humor, knowledge of business, and passion for design. Through profanity and personality they provide a kick in the pants to push people to define direction and purpose in their life and work.
From their example they endeavor to inspire others to take big risks, aim higher, and push further.
