Z-TIME:

THE ART AND SCIENCE OF CIRCADIAN RHYTHMS

7-11-2020 – 21-2-2021

You are made of time. Literally. Our bodies have evolved over thousands of years to keep time with the rising and setting of the sun. Strong environmental cues, called zeitgebers, tune our body clocks to the world around us. Disrupting these circadian rhythms (døgnrytme) can have a profound effect on our health.

Chronobiologists have the difficult task of trying to study this embodied time. In the laboratory they use strange and sometimes surreal techniques, like working by bright red light. They have even made their own system for recording time in the lab, called Zeitgeber Time or Z-Time.

This pop-up display is an artistic look at the experience of scientists who study time. Created by artist Isabella Martin, in collaboration with Medical Museion researchers and scientists at the Novo Nordisk Center for Basic Metabolic Research (CBMR), it explores the strange and surreal ways that scientists make and modify time. The exhibition is designed to invite you into the artist’s process and what you see will change as the artwork develops.
