Chomko & Rosier, whose work blends art, technology and architecture have created Relative Clocks, a visualisation of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. 

While this sounds terribly complicated, the idea of the piece, commissioned by the UK Space Agency, is to simplify it.

The piece charts the effects of time dilation via four specially created clocks – connected in real time – to spacecraft orbiting the Earth including the Hubble Telescope and the International Space Station.

You can see the installation from 11-13 November at the Decima X Gallery, 65 Decima Street, London, SE1 4QR and find out more information here.
