Antarctic Time Travel

PRESENTED ON AUG 28, 2014
IN CHRISTCHURCH @ VOL 20

Bec McMaster explores ancient air, lush forests and the building of seven time machines all in her current exhibition project, Antarctic Time Travel - the headline exhibition for NZ IceFest. The world’s most significant festival on Antarctica, celebrating New Zealand and Christchurch’s unique relationship with Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. As an exhibition developer and sustainability professional who is hugely intrigued by all things Antarctica, the chance to develop an exhibition on what Antarctica’s past can tell us about future climate change was right up Bec’s alley. Here, Bec shares the process of engaging with some of NZ’s leading scientists in order to present past and future climate change in a balanced and empowering way. Take this 50 million year journey from the past into our near future in the blink of 20 slides.

A GARA COL TEMPO SENZA OROLOGIO – La Percezione del Tempo Negli Animali e Bambini.

BY EVELINA ISOLA
@ VOL 10 ON OCT 31, 2014

This project have been presented to the 12th edition of Genoa Science Festival, as a playful lab for kids. Do animals have perception of the time? According to some scientists, only humans have a real memory, while the other animals have a perception of the time limited or episodic. A different perception of time can have different utilities according to escape strategy, communication or feeding. Time and its perception are not relative only on physics books! This happens in a lot of very small animals, for example the flies that perceive the world with a slow motion effect.

In other species the perception of time is connected to their movement in the space, as in case of dolphin and bats biosonar. Children are conducted in a fascinating “time travel” in their time perceptions, from the perception that themselves have, to try out what other animals fell of time, according to the different utility in the survival strategies.
