Description

Time Spaces exhibit at Royal Institution 

Science Art Installation at The Royal Institution

The Time Spaces display is a way of visualizing and comparing different periods of time through the evolution of the universe.

All periods of time up to 13.8 billion years (time since the big bang) can be displayed.

The volume of the installation represents the time elapsed since the big bang. Smaller periods of time are represented by smaller volumes, as embodied in the time shapes.

All shapes contain, and in fact, are time. The relation of the shapes to each other is the relation of periods of time.

It is also possible to display astronomical distances. Similiar to a planetarium visitors are able to travel through space and time.
