Discover Moon Ribas: Young Self-described Cyborg Artist

When we hear the word cyborg, the first things that probably cross our minds are futuristic movies with half robots-half humans, or comic books that depict cyborg heroes and villains. By definition, a cyborg is a person whose body contains mechanical or electrical devices that ensure greater abilities than those of normal humans. Moon Ribas (31) is a Spanish avant-garde artist who saw the possibilities of extending her senses via technology and using it for art expression. Ribas got an online sensor implanted to her arm that allows her to feel earthquakes in real time, and she uses the sensation of the vibrations for her dance movements.
