Breakthroughs in science have often inspired artists. This exhibition brings to the viewer interpretations by artists of the complex and intriguing field of particle physics. All of the works displayed originate from artist residencies at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN).
The exhibition was co-produced by ScANNER (the Science and Art Network for New Exhibitions and Research), composed of CERN (the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, Geneva), FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology, Liverpool), CCCB (Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona), iMAL (interactive Media Arts Laboratory, Brussels), and Le Lieu Unique, Nantes.
