"Neil Harbisson: I listen to color"
"Artist Neil Harbisson was born completely color blind, but these days a device attached to his head turns color into audible frequencies. Instead of seeing a world in grayscale, Harbisson can hear a symphony of color -- and yes, even listen to faces and paintings."
Mines the implications of the technology that allows him to perceive and understand colors through sound, though he is entirely colorblind.
Notes that he created the Cyborg Foundation to encourage people to see technologies as extensions of the organic human body, making us more powerful, sensitive, and human.
