During the DRIFT in Carré tour you encounter my interactive installation Heartsync under the stage. Heartsync is a realtime interactive installation that explores human synchronisation.
Let’s make more opportunities in our lives for connection. Take some time to tune into yourself and tune with others. Your heartbeat and breath says a lot about you, become aware of your own rhythms.
To often we use technology as an escape and for economical gains.
Your breathing reflects your state of mind, remember how you breathe if you are upset and how different it is from when you are blissful. But did you also notice that you can use your breath to change your state of mind? Heartsync makes use of this principle.

Next to that we have the ability to synchronise with ourselves and each other, from each participant the heart coherence (HRV) is measured and the group coherence is visualised.
