MOON RIBAS, avant-garde artist & cyborg activist, Spain
Moon Ribas is a Catalan avant-garde artist and cyborg activist. Since 2007 she has been experimenting with a union between technology and her body to explore the boundaries of human perception and to experience movement in a deeper way. She is 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 Earth and even on the moon through vibrations in real time. Other works and inventions include transdental communication, 360º perception and the Speedborg. In 2010 she co-founded the Cyborg Foundation, an international organisation that aims to help people become cyborgs, defend cyborg rights and promote cyborg art. Ribas also co-founded the Transpecies Society in 2017, an association that gives voice to non-human identities, defends the freedom of self-design and offers the creation of new senses and new organs.
