Stelarc: The Man with Three Ears

Vice Motherboard produced a really great episode featuring Australian performance artist Stelarc whose work involves extending the human body through technology.

Stelarc is a Greek weirdo who lives in Australia and uses medical equipment, prosthetic limbs, electrodes, virtual-reality systems, endoscopy, and crazy cyborgian human-internet connections to produce shows that fuses the lines between art, performance art, body art, and some kind of futuristic Skinny Puppy electronics trade fair. RIght now he’s setting up a big retrospective in Paris with artifacts and clips of all all his old favorites: Virtual Arm, Stimbod, Stomach Sculpture.
