This impressive time-lapse video presents the painstaking work undertaken by international artist Josef Kristofoletti to create a three story tall mural for the ATLAS Experiment at CERN, or the European Organization for Nuclear Research. Collaborating closely on location with CERN physicists, over the course of a year Kristofoletti developed a project that visually interpreted what the Higgs boson might possibly look like. The result is an astonishing mural that captures the spirit of inquiry present in and essential to the pursuit of science and the artistic process.
