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

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