In addition to the graphic design we produced the animated interpretation for this award winning exhibition. Our ambition was to make the often daunting subject matter of particle physics fully accessible and relevant by carrying the approachable language through to the interpretive digital media.
This projection mapped installation incorporated four animated films playing out on the open books and note pads of the table’s surface.
The films use traditional animation to explain often difficult to conceive ideas about antimatter, gravity & dimensions, dark matter and quark-gluon plasma drawing the visitor in with a playfulness and familiarity of the drawn line.
The films were choreographed to interact with one another as each sequence ends and the black hole from ‘gravity & dimensions’ eventually pulling in all the text and animation as a wave of dark matter passes across the table.
Designed to play on computer screen props that formed part of the staging of each zone in the exhibition, these animated interpretations describe how protons are injected into the LHC, passing through a series of accelerators before reaching speeds of 99.9999991% the speed of light.
