CERN – Universe of Particles

How can the invisible be made visible and how can a truly abstract and complex subject be made accessible for all?
Today’s throws us back to the world’s largest research centre of particle physics: CERN (Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire). Visitors are immersed into a world without boundaries and dimensions. They become part of the subatomic level and the vast expansion of our solar system. Interactive display stations provide information about research facilities, the worldwide network, research methods, new technologies, discoveries and the scientists.

The chronophotography is a set of stop-action photographs of rapidly moving things in order to study and measure the motion. Pioneers of this technique included artist Eadward Muybridge (1830-1904) and scientist Étienne-Jules Marey (1830-1904).
