1. The Shard Inauguration


    from WE ARE COLLIDER Added 576 0 0

    Collider was invited to launch Western Europe’s tallest building to London, the worlds press and a select group of VVIP’s. We created the biggest light and laser show the capital had ever seen, played out on the entire 72 floors of the building and sychronised to the music of the world famous London Philharmonic Orchestra. There were 3 phases to the activity, starting with a Royal plaque unveiling ceremony with key dignitaries including HRH Prince Andrew, Mayor Boris Johnson and key officials from Qatar National Bank and the State of Qatar. In the evening we provided a formal dinner for 250 key VVIP's with live performances from the London Philharmonic Orchestra. A stunning light and laser show choreographed to a live performance from the Orchestra closed the evening. Results: The activity was a resounding success with press coverage in all national titles and front page coverage on 6 national titles including The Guardian & The Times. In addition to this international coverage across 410 channels on TV was secured including channels in the US, China and Middle East. Such was the anticipation surrounding the inauguration that impromptu Shard parties were held throughout London and London Bridge was actually closed as over 5,000 revellers converged to gain a birds eye view of the light show.

    • PHENIX Experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider

      In this audio slideshow Senior Physicist Edward O'Brien of Brookhaven Natl. Laboratory in Upton, NY, gives us a tour of PHENIX at RHIC. This nuclear physics experiment measures the effect of slamming particles into each other at very high speeds, a methodology that has proved the existence of a Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP). O'Brien talks a little about the nature of the QGP and speculates on its usefulness for humanity.

            I was working through a GSG tutorial that used a polygon reducer on the centre form. I didnt quite get the reducer to work correctly so I thought I would just flood a chamber with balls and see what happens. The internal object is quite similar to a favourite artist of mine- Graham Caldwell. www.grahamcaldwell.com/contact.html http://greyscalegorilla.com/blog/2012/05/polygon-reduction-deformer-effect/

            • Higgs Boson: explained the easy way!


              from SEEQ Added

              You've all heard about Higgs Boson. But what exactly is all the fuss about? We'll explain. Okay, Remember this guy? He said everything in space, like you or the chair you're sitting in, has mass. Mass represents the amount of particles in an object. The more mass, the heavier. But in the 60's Peter Higgs noticed that particles don't have volume, they appear empty so how can they have mass? He said mass is not stuff but something like a charge. The charge is given to the particles by an invisible field that is all around us: the Higgs Field. Some particles react strongly to it and are given a lot of mass, other particles are hardly affected by it and get little or no mass at all. Mass causes particles to be attracted to each other and thus forming objects, creating life. Without the Higgs Field there would be no mass and every particle would fly around at the speed of light. There would be.. wel euh... nothing... Higgs' theory became a foundation for modern Physics. Others used his ideas to create more and more theories. Only problem: the Higgs field was never proven.. And if incorrectly it could shatter everything we thought we knew about Physics. So how can the Higgs field be proved? Well you need to collide two particles and study the decay. See if it contains a part of the Higgs field, called a Higgs Boson. But therefore a massive amount of force AND some super quick measuring instruments are needed! For that reason CERN created the impressive LHC near Geneva. The LHC has the power and the observatory capabilities to discover a Higgs Boson. And recently, that's what the scientists at CERN think they've found. The discovery could lead to a confirmation of our understandings in physics or provide us with a clean slate, ready to be filled with total new insights of the universe. One thing's for sure: exciting times are ahead, for the people at CERN, for science, for you and me. Thank you Mister Higgs.

He teamed up with director Lorin Askill & Collider to put his latest pieces in motion, to share the black and light we can only garner from looking inside ourselves. We were there to film all the actions behind the scenes.
