The artist and 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. Since then he has developed a plan to control the machine by biometric data that he obtains from sensors on his body. Heart rate, muscle tension, body temperature, orientation / gravity are measured and translated to variations in motion. Thus not only does the body respond to the movements of the Neurotransmitter, the Neurotransmitter also responds to the body.
