“Together science and the arts form culture - our expression of what it is to be human in our universe. Our work is in science, but when we engage with the arts, we want to ensure we approach the same level of quality”.(Rolf Dieter Heuer – Director General of CERN)Join the discussion between an artist and a scientist and hear how CERN, the world’s largest particle physics laboratory and home to the Large Hadron Collider, inspired internationally renowned sound sculptor Bill Fontana.Robert Semper, Director of Program at the Exploratorium, introduces the artist along with Cosmologist Subodh Patil and moderates a conversation about their collision, with audio and video segments from Fontana’s explorations.By bringing world-class artists and scientists together in a free exchange of ideas, the Collide@CERN residency program explores elements even more elusive than the Higgs boson: human ingenuity, creativity, and the imagination.
