“I was surprised by the number of connections that happen very quickly. We have been talking to very different people in a very short amount of time. Barcelona is a very interesting place for design, and the way things are approached here is somewhat unconventional, which is exactly what we’re looking for.

Moon Ribas
Moon Ribas is a Catalan avant-garde artist and cyborg activist best known for developing the Seismic Sense, an online seismic sensor once implanted in her feet that allowed her to perceive earthquakes taking place anywhere in the planet through vibrations in real time. Ribas transposed the earthquakes into either sound, in her piece Seismic Percussion; or dance, in Waiting For Earthquakes. In these performances the Earth is the composer and the choreographer; and Ribas, the interpreter.
