Working with bioluminescent indicator-genes and relevant activators and repressors, researchers at RIKEN’s Kobe facility investigated circadian rhythms. Researchers here attempted to establish whether there is a universal phase underpinning the more commonly understood morning, day and night phases of circadian rhythms.
RIKEN is Japan’s largest comprehensive research institution and is involved in a diverse range of scientific disciplines. Founded in 1917 as a private research foundation in Tokyo, it has grown to include a network of research centers and institutes across Japan.
The composition shows the reflection and shadow of a figure cast onto the face of a sundial as a visual metaphor for circadian rhythms. The image was primarily created using rudimentary 3D geometry, lighting and texture mapping, with some post-production work in Photoshop.
