- Purpose of the Exhibition -
This is an exhibition that will take visitors on a "journey" through the world of various different types of "time" as perceived scientifically. We will newly reconceptualize the "time" that we ordinarily experience nonchalantly by breaking away from the human perspectives and technology built by humans to measure time (clocks), and consider the "time" that is present in things like the universe, the Earth, life, and matter. We have achieved a unique exhibition with the cooperation of the Research Institute for Time Studies of Yamaguchi University, which is comprised of researchers in a variety of different fields, and through collaborations with noteworthy young artists, musicians, and more.
