One day in ten seconds (on relativity of time)

[ 2015 ]


Beyond a thinking related to the physical spaces on Earth and its projections in form of maps, time is also a vector to be put in perspective. How could be possible to relativize the duration of cycles, the length of days and nights?

One day in ten seconds (on the relativity of time) is an apparatus that simulate the length of a day within a few seconds. The low-tech apparatus leaves its engine accessible to be seen, demystifying its mode of operation.  The Earth photograph was appropriated from an outdated Atlas of World.
