Measuring the sublime?

Just been to a presentation by  i-DAT’s on their Bio-OS system (I am working with them on the Confluence project). Bio-OS involves you wearing a small belt that measures breathing rate, heart rate, galvanic skin response and body temperature (in effect a wearable lie detector). The information gathered is passed to your mobile phone and from there on to the main server at the university. So what is my true response to landscape, to the watershed of the Torridge River, which is the focus of Confluence? How might it be measured? And does my conscious awareness of what is around me match that of my unconscious body response? (Wanderer Above the Sea Fog by Casper David Friedrich)

On twitter at the moment:
