Hadron Collider Series

In September 2008 I saw an article in the newspaper about the Large Hadron Collider. It was accompanied by some images of parts of this gigantic machine. I was very intrigued by what I was seeing so decided to do some research about CERN. I became totally fascinated by the fantastic circular images I found, and have been working on a textile series ever since that draws inspiration from this machine. More recently I have been using the physics behind the LHC as my source material - work by the greatests physicists of the 20th Century. I have been delving into the mysteries of the atom and sub-atomic particles, as well as continuing to try and create space and depth in my work.
