This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017. 

Part of A Grand Exposition: Arcade

Part of A Grand Exposition: Sci-Art

Visitors will be given a bio-sensor to wear (small, simple wearable devices that monitor heart rates for instance), and their bio-data will be projected in real time on a large sheet of paper, upon which they will be invited to draw by tracing the projected lines. The visualization will follow pathways dictated by the artist’s drawings, and will change speed and direction in response to their bio-data. At the end of the workshop, visitors will be able to take away their very own bio-drawings.

Please note that this activity is for individuals or two people at a time.
