CERN for the senses

Tuesday, September 10 • 12:00 - 13:00

What’s better than a microscope?

Designed to detect some of the tiniest yet most energetic particles ever created on Earth, the ATLAS detector sits in a cavern 100m below a Swiss village. The data produced contributes to new theories that better describe our universe.

In 2015, award-winning artists Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt, who together form the artist duo Semiconductor, participated in a research residency at CERN. They were the first to have received permission to work directly with raw data generated by the experiment, and produced the large-scale immersive installation HALO.

Join them as they share their ideas and unusual experiences at the largest particle physics laboratory in the world.
