Stelarc is the world’s most celebrated technological performance artist, exploring alternative anatomies using prosthetics, machines, and virtual systems. His body has housed a swallowed “Stomach Sculpture”, been suspended in midair by hooks, and been made to dance involuntarily by audiences administering electric shocks via the Internet. He has extended his body with a “Third Hand” and a walking, six-legged robot “Exoskeleton”; and undergone extensive surgery to create his famous “Ear on Arm”, which won the Ars Electronica Golden Nica Award for Hybrid Art in 2010.
