A cross section of the magnets used in the LHC. I really love the fan shape of the copper and the mixed metals used.
A digital interpritation of the data from the particle collisions to create the ‘Higgs Boson’. I really love the bright colours and how it bursts out.
A circuit board for part of the LHC, which was actually made in Liverpool (my home town!) I like the shape and colour of it.
A photo of the LHC, it’s so incredibly detailed, it’s hard to fathom how many parts there are involved.
A photograph of an engineer working on part of the LHC, I like how he looks like he is wearing it.
Part of the LHC.
They had a projection of a digital interpretation of the process involved in the LHC. I really liked how bright and futuristic it looked.
This was the part of the projection that represented the finding, or ‘un-blinding’ of the Higgs Boson. I love the bright colours bursting out.
This was part of an exhibition call ‘who am I’. This is a piece by Dryden Goodwin, its a replica of the HeLa cells, which I had actually already read about in my research, they were taken from a cancer sufferer in 1951 who died shortly after, but the cells are still used today. I find this so interesting, it raises questions of mortality.
A light through a coloured filter. I love the rainbow neon light.
This is a still from a visual art instillation at the museum. It is a person moving around but made of lights, it had brilliant movement and great colours.
I visited the Science Museum in London because they currently have an exhibition about the Large Hadron Collider, or LHC. The exhibtion was amazing, I learnt so much and got a lot of inspiration from it. I was really drawn to the colourful diagrams used to represent data, and also the magnets they use in the LHC which are made of mixed metals. The Science Museum in general was really great, I haven’t been there for years and it’s now really interactive and they have quite a lot of art too.
