Public vernissage with the artist in attendance

Ars Electronica Golden Nica 2010 Prize Winner Comes to Montreal on the 45th Anniversary of the Communication Studies Department at Concordia University

“The biological body is not well organ-ized. The body needs to be Internet enabled in more intimate ways. THE EAR ON ARM project suggests an alternate anatomical architecture – the engineering of a new organ for the body: an available, accessible and mobile organ for other bodies in other places, enabling people to locate and listen in to another body elsewhere.” Stelarc.

Thursday October 21st 2010, 6:30 pm – Fluxmedia is proud to present a public lecture by Stelarc, internationally renowned Australian performance artist. Since the 1960’s Stelarc’s artwork has dealt with bodily extension, cyborgization and human-machine interfaces.

Thursday October 21st, 4:30pm- Vernissage and opening of exhibition “Ear on Arm” held at The Media Gallery.
