At CERN, physicists and engineers research the universe's fundamental structure, stretching highly-advanced technology to its limit, as embodied by the Large Hadron Collider and its detectors.

Scientists employ a broad range of physical experiments and represent models through deeply specialised mathematics. The sense of wonder towards what complex phenomena may reveal in such an environment fascinates many artists who find themselves inevitably drawn to the laboratory.
