In this exhibition, artists consider how we measure and track the movements of our perceived world through space and time. The works address the measurement of time, light, colours, seasons and the movement of celestial bodies. The exhibition as a whole considers complex interactions and interconnections ; how one thing can be understood to influence another... and how human bodies and technical apparatus measure, document and allow us to perceive unfolding events as part of an embodied experience.
