[Yasmin_announcements] artists and atoms

A collaboration between Nina Czegledy and Marcus Neustetter

On September 10 2008, billions of particles were smashed together in
nano-seconds to recreate the first moments of the Big Bang in the
Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's most powerful particle
accelerator. Thousands of scientists worked for decades to achieve
this scientific spectacle, "challenging those who seek confirmation of
established knowledge, and those who dare to dream beyond the
paradigm". Nina Czegledy and Marcus Neustetter were so inspired by a
lecture on the LHC that while they had already deliberated and tested
project ideas for several months, they immediately adopted a fresh
approach, which led to The Visual Collider.

For the first exhibited manifestation of The Visual Collider, Nina
Czegledy and Marcus Neustetter are presenting a small segment of their
larger vision of an ongoing collision of images and impressions that
take place with each experience by both artists. In some sense the
exhibition becomes a sketch for a Visual Collider that, much like the
LHC, can produce data through reaction, some of which is measured and
some of which we are not able to comprehend or express.
