TheHamsterProject is a performance using a series of hacked gadgets and devices to adapt human behaviour to a specific pet, enforcing its circadian cycle onto its owner. This can be used to increase your own daily efficiency, using the advantage lifestyles of specific animals. At the same time a space is created, which inherits a shift of power, pushing the human in a position of obedience.

Modern city life is only marginally related to the actual daily routine our bodies evolved for. Hunting and gathering are no longer primary professions, but the allocation of our days only changed marginally. Specific jobs need only short times of full concentration, allowing long times of regeneration, while others only offer small regular times to relax instead of a single long term. Different animals are adapted to specific routine ,that might suit specific professions a lot better than the human one does.
