SNN#1 – The Speed of Thought Itself is an experimental thirty-minute audio/visual perfor- mance that recreates the 19th-century physiologist Franciscus Donders’ 1865 laboratory ex- periments measuring the reaction time between stimulus and response in order to calculate the speed of mental processes – what Donders called the “speed of thought.”
