One day in ten seconds (on relativity of time)

Beyond the ideas related to the physical Earth spaces and their projections in maps, time is also a vector to be put in perspective. How could it be possible to relativize the duration of cycles, the length of days and nights?

A day in ten seconds (on the relativity of time) is an apparatus that simulates a day’s length within a few seconds. It is a low-tech apparatus that leaves its structure visible, showing its mode of operation. The photograph of the Earth was appropriated from an outdated Atlas of the World.
