Circadian Waves

The artwork Circadian Waves: Resonances combines light and sound, inspired by the Nobel Prize awarded research into our bodies’ internal clocks. 

Most life on earth has a rhythm that follows the changes of natural light throughout the day, also known as the circadian rhythm. This internal clock is set every day by exposure to the cycles of light and darkness. This phenomenon was the main focus for scientists Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W. Young, who were awarded the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their “discoveries of molecular mechanisms controlling the circadian rhythm”. 

In modern, urban society we rarely experience dark skies, and the city sounds never completely quiet down. Our rhythms are altered by patterns of lights and sounds that do not reflect the natural day. This affects not only humans, but also animals and plants. 

Through this light and sound installation, the audience can experience the shifts between light and darkness, sound and silence in the middle of an urban environment, resonating with our internal, lost rhythms.
