Jiffy colloquially describes a very short space of time. In quantum physics it is also a measurement which defines the amount of time it takes for light to travel one fermi, which is approximately the size of a nucleon. One fermi is 10−15 meters, so a jiffy is about 3 × 10−24 seconds.

Eleni Wittbrodt (*1990, Bonn, Germany) lives and works in Glasgow, UK. She completed a Diplom in Fine Art at Kunsthochschule Mainz (Germany), in the classes of Tamara Grcic and John Skoog, and went on to study a Masters of Fine Art Practice at the Glasgow School of Art (UK), graduating in 2019.
