All life on earth operates to a daily 24-hour cycle – through rhythmic patterns of activity that are known as Circadian Rhythms.In partnership with APC Microbiome Ireland, the Glucksman is pleased to present an exhibition of Irish and international artists who explore Circadian Rhythms through reflections on time, the cadence of working life, sleeping patterns, as well as through the impact of modern technologies on biological life.

The exhibition also provides a fascinating insight into the world-leading research being undertaken at University College Cork by APC Microbiome Ireland where researchers are investigating how gut microbes can influence human circadian rhythm to impact obesity, metabolic disease and brain function.
