Quotes about Neil Harbisson
- Frankly, Neil Harbisson, freaked me the fuck out. Both inspirational and terrifying. Like seeing a benevolent witch displaying her magic: even if you’re only using your powers to grow magic daffodils, it’s an ungodly talent that’s beyond human.
- Davo McConville, as quoted in Noisey (1 May 2014) "Moogfest, where brains meet bass"
- I had a very special encounter with him. Surreal and especially futuristic. He raises so many questions, so many lines of thought, that force you to think differently.
- Neil Harbisson is one of the world's first bona fide cyborgs.
- Brian Merchant, as quoted in Motherboard (8 May 2013) "What it's like to be a cyborg as explained by a cyborg"
- Harbisson's antenna, hovering above his Henry V-meets-the-Monkees hairdo, is quite the lifestyle statement. I tell him he looks like a cross between an insect and a call-centre worker.
- Stuart Jeffries, as quoted in The Guardian (5 May 2014) "Neil Harbisson, the world's first cyborg artist"
- Harbisson meets two apparently incompatible conditions: shyness and exhibitionism. He speaks softly, never utters a word higher than another and his body language is that of someone slightly retracted. However, he walks all over the world with a cyborg eye dangling over his forehead in a kind of antenna that seems to sprout from within his head. Along the way, people nudge each other and point at him. But non of that stops him, he remains impassive and continues on his way.
