Particle Hunt is a multimedia

in 2016 at the Science Park in
Amsterdam during the exhibition
New Realism.

For the project New Realism, a selection of artists was connected to different scientists. Prof. dr. Marcel Merk of the Nikhef, the Dutch National Institute for Subatomic Physics, introduced me to the research question of his group: 'Why is there hardly any antimatter present in our universe?' As part of my extensive research for this project, I visited CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. The multimedia audio-tour Particle Hunt, led the spectator past 9 different site specific interventions at the Science Park and thus formed a ‘hunt’ looking for new ways to visualize and talk about the particle world.
