Manel De Aguas

  • Catalan cyborg and transpecies artist

Manel De Aguas (Barcelona,1996) is a Catalan cyborg and transpecies artist, activist, producer and performer based in Berlin, best known for developing and installing weather sensory fins in his head. The fins, formally known as 'Weather Fins', allow him to hear atmospheric pressure, temperature and humidity through implants at each side of his head. His artistic practice also includes music production and performance, where he explores the weather through sound offering the audience a sonic experience of the atmosphere. De Aguas studied contemporary photography and music production in Barcelona and became Cyborg Foundation's artist in residence in 2017. Later, he co-founded the Transpecies Society, an association that gives voice to people who do not identify as being 100% human and raises awareness on the issues they face. The association, based in Barcelona, offered workshops specialized in the design and creation of new sensory organs. De Aguas has shared his experience as a cyborg artist by performing and speaking in conferences and festivals in Colombia, Italy, Argentina, Paraguay and Czech Republic among others.
