Artist/designer Daniel de Bruin is driven by the desire to become part of the things he creates. Neurotransmitter 3000 is such a thing: a seven-meter high attraction in which he lets himself swing around. He built the first phase of the machine as part of his graduation from HKU University of the Arts Utrecht in 2015. From then on, he developed a plan to control the machine by biometric data he obtains by sensors on his body. Heart rate, body temperature, orientation / gravity and muscle tension are measured and translated to variations in motion. Thus, not only responds De Bruins body on the movements of the Neurotransmitter, the Neurotransmitter also responds to his body.
