The calendar we use today is based on the cycle of the earth's rotation around the sun.
The exact cycle is 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 45 seconds.
We have established leap years and other calendar rules to avoid this 5 hour 48 minute 45 second error.

But what about in nature?

From nature's point of view, there is no concept of a calendar.
5 hours, 48 minutes, 45 seconds per year.
57 seconds per day.
There will be a gap in time with humans.

In other words, there are 57 seconds in a day that we don't have.
Isn't there a space here that humans cannot see?

This work is an observation of 57 seconds.

About Jin Ito’s work "57 sec"
The Star Lights of Life
Shigeo, GOTO – Art Producer/ Professor, Kyoto University of the Arts
Each life has its own time – or to put it more precisely – we generate our own time while we are living.
The earth is a "field of miracle" in the universe. There, "life" is creating a unique, high-dimensional activity while resisting the increase of entropy. Living in a three-dimensional space, although we cannot perceive time with our sense of sight or touch, we do understand that there is time. And clocks were invented to visualize that and help us recognize the invisible concept of time.
It would be fair to say, without clocks, humanity would not have developed as much as it has. 
A minute is 60 seconds, and a year is 365 days. When a year ends, a new year begins. 
This is common sense we never doubt. However, have we ever thought about why is one second this long, and how has it been determined? How is it synchronized with our sensibility?
A photographer is a scientist of time, as well as an artist. Jin is one of the rare photographers who can trace back photography to its origin through his work. He uses photography as a device of time, and presents the gap of 57 sec/ day between humankind’s rules and the universe or nature through art.
As a piece of photography art, the work is visible to the naked eye. However, the core of it is conceptual and invisible – it attaches to the time of “life,” and attempts to reexamine the time of living things. This is a point worthy to note.
Having said that, I do not mean that “57 sec” by Jin is top-heavy with information difficult to understand. In the soft, fluid colors and spaces, the audience will be immersed in the work, and will probably be able to hear the voice of life.
The lights captured by Jin teach us that, the scape is actually what life emits, not the stellar light that burns through the stars in the desolate outer space.
Right. What we see here in the photos is the Star Lights of Life.
