I did this piece for the Macro & Micro show opening this Friday at the Light Grey Art Lab. I chose the ‘everything else’ category which includes anything that is not specifically in the animal, mineral or vegetable category.
With the recent confirmation of the Higgs boson and consequently the Higgs field, I felt it was relevant to try and illustrate the concept of this ‘god particle’ and the impact it has on everyday life.
Here is an article which explains the Higgs Boson.
Sub atomic particles are interesting to me because they are the fundamental building blocks of our known universe. Yet it takes a level of faith to believe that the world around us is made up of particles that have never been seen with the naked eye. The scientific impact of the Higgs boson is wide, but I am no scientist. I simply have an interest in science from an observational point of view. Only time will tell what major impact the discovery of the Higgs boson will have on our everyday lives.
The show will be on from April 19 - May 10 at the Light Grey Art Lab and features work from over 90 different awesome artists. go check it out.
