Stelarc, Ear on Arm, 2008, microphone, silicone.  In this work, the latest in a series of projects to surgically create an extra ear on his body, Stelarc not only had an ear surgically created on his inner arm, but the eventual goal is to have it wired for sound and connected to the internet.  In this way, the experience of living as Stelarc, in his body, becomes available to anyone who cares to be involved.
