Tania Ruiz Gutiérrez for Citytunneln and Statenskonstråd

The concept of “Universal Time” is a recent one. Before the nineteenth century, when a trip from one country to another took days, and from one continent to another, months, there was little need to coordinate the time between different places. The introduction of standard time, in the early nineteenth century, was closely related to the development of the railway system. Just as the standardisation of time begets the idea of synchronisation, the establishment of a universal time begets that of simultaneity.
