Cyborg speaker Moon Ribas is an artist and activist famous for creating the Seismic Sense. This is a seismic sensor attached to her feet that enables her to detect global earthquakes via vibrations in real-time. She then uses her seismic sense to communicate her experience on stage. In Seismic Percussion, Ribas transforms earthquakes into sound; in Waiting For Earthquakes, she transforms earthquakes into dance. Earth serves as both the choreographer and composer for these performances, with Ribas serving as the interpreter.
Additionally, speaker Moon Ribas’ seismic sense enables her to detect moonquakes, which are earthquakes that take place on the Moon. In Ribas’ view, everyone can become a “senstronaut” if they extend their senses to see beyond our own planet. With the addition of this new sense, her body can be on Earth while also feeling the Moon. It allows her to be both on Earth and in space at the same time.
From 2007 to the present day, Moon has been getting creative with the blending of technology and her body to better understand and appreciate movement. In the past, she’s studied things like transcendental communication, 360-degree perception, and the Speedborg, amongst other things.
In 2010, she co-founded the Cyborg Foundation, a global organization dedicated to assisting people on their journey to becoming cyborgs, defending cyborg rights, and promoting cyborg art and culture. Furthermore, she co-founded the Transpecies Society, an organization that advocates for non-humans’ identities, self-design freedom and offers the development of new senses and organs in a group setting.
Moon delves into the ways in which she has incorporated technology into her body, allowing her to sense and interact with the world in extraordinary ways. She discusses how her cyborg identity has influenced her artistic process, pushing the boundaries of traditional art forms and blurring the lines between human and machine.
