“Speed and Colours of Europe” is the artistic result of a collaborative collection of data obtained by Moon Ribas and partner Neil Harbisson, the founders of the international group Cyborg Foundation. The two spent several months traveling to Europe’s capital cities and collecting data about each location’s dominant colors and average pedestrian walking speeds through use of their cybernetic enhancements. Neil Harbisson, who was born colorblind, detected color schemes through use of his “eyeborg,” which allows him to “hear” color through an implanted chip that transmits sound via bone conduction. Through use of her “speedborg” earrings, which allow the wearer to perceive exact speeds and movements in front of them via vibration, Moon Ribas collected data about average walking speeds. The resulting video demonstrates their findings through the use of their enhanced senses.
