<Objectives of this exhibition>
This special exhibition explores the many different types of "time" from the perspective of science, by bringing visitors on a "tour" of the world. By distancing ourselves from the human construct of time based on technology (clocks), and considering time based on the existence of the universe, the Earth, life, and substances, this exhibition takes a fresh look at the concept of "time," which we come into contact with without any thought on a regular basis. This unique exhibition is brought together through collaboration with the Research Institute for Time Studies at Yamaguchi University, made up of researchers from various fields of study, as well as notable young artists and musicians.
