You and your Pantone fandecks have got this color thing all figured out, at least from a visual perspective. But what does color sound like? Before you seek answers through illegal substances and/or the synesthesic genius-musings of Vladimir Nabokov, spend a few minutes with Neil Harbisson. The self-described “cyborgist and colorlogist,” who’s trundling off to Trondheim, Norway next week for the Meta.Morf Biennale, was born totally colorblind. He took the stage at this year’s TEDGlobal conference in Edinburgh to explain how he has found color in a grayscale world.
