FROM SIGNAL TO VISUAL

During this three hour workshop, you will have the opportunity to experiment with various sensors to measure and track (normally invisible) vital bodily functions; the heartbeat and muscle activity.

The data gathered from the sensors will then be transformed into compelling, exciting visualizations.
