The Time and rhytm of life

In Roman times there were only the hours, not minutes and seconds. Since the industrial revolution and the development of transport, the hours have also been divided into (60) minutes of 60 seconds. The current rhythm of life is therefore completely different. Deadlines, timetables, exact departure times for transport and alarm clocks determine the rhythm. It is this tension between human time and chronometry that is at the heart of this exhibition (le temps et moi) from Roman times to the present day.
