About art@CMS
The art@CMS programme promotes the dialogue between science and the arts by bringing scientists and artists into direct contact. From the resulting dialogue, the artist creates a unique interpretation of the world of particle physics using the eyes of the CMS detector.

Installed at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the CMS experiment records and analyses the collisions of billions of protons. Each collision is reconstructed for viewing by the scientist.
Through art exhibitions and educational workshops, the two complementary views merge, stimulating our senses and inspiring our curiosity by highlighting the mystery.
