sonochromatic portrait #1
by neil harbisson
and neil harbisson is
and he’s colourblind.
and he has an eyeborg. he can hear colours.
‘Each face creates a different micro tone chord depending on its colours. In order to create a Sonochromatic Portrait, Harbisson needs to stand in front of the person and point his eyeborg at the different parts of the face.
The transposition of colour to sound is based on Harbisson’s Sonochromatic Music Scale, a microtonal and logarithmic scale with 360 notes in an octave. Each note corresponding to a specific degree of the color wheel.’

projecting starts from within.
what. i can’t believe how epic this is.
looks like a place you’d go to for eventually figuring out you and your stuff.

'different phases of attitude towards life from the moment of birth till the day of death'
' HOST navigates the ways in which we interact with our landscape through our growth as a human race. We are constantly expanding our presence on this planet, and consequently reducing our natural landscape of which we are forever dependent upon for our physical materials for further development. This creates a very unique relationship between man and its natural surroundings - we are simultaneously destroying our environment that creates the materials that we need to further sustain our expansion, and jointly we are creating synthetic reproductions of that environment to farm those same elements for our consumption. Through this interruption we are destroying our original womb and losing our original referent and instead manipulating those original elements to create our own genetic makeup for our constructed worlds. ‘
+ you gotta look closer for this one. those lines, replacing trees (or at least that’s what my eyes crave to see) are cut outs from maps and stuff. kewl. stuff.
and how awesome that in the description he calls the world we live in 'or original womb'. can’t get over it.
