Observe the time by tree and bee

Since April and until June, the brilliant Cathy Haynes is spending some time as Chisenhale Gallery's artist in residence in Victoria Park, exploring the concept of time by re-imagining the park as Stereochron Island, a place outside the reach of the standard clock. Today, Stereochron Island hosts a lunch hour examination of time, which we are told is an "opportunity to break that rhythm and luxuriate in a different sense of time from the rush-rush of the mechanical clock", and sounds very nice indeed.
Today's event draws on the expertise of London Wildlife Trust ecologist Tony Wileman to examine how we can observe the natural rhythms of other species and relearn how to not be beholden to mechanical time. It's one of a series of events on Stereochron Island, culminating with a Making Midsummer Solar Clocks workshop on 22nd June.
