The 'God' particle

The unknowable truth

The idea that that particles react differently when being observed makes us question what happens around us when we are not observing it. Our consciousness informs us that everything is the same as when we last looked. But how do we know this for certain? The theory of the atom doesn’t hang on the idea that it cannot be split, and when observed acts differently but when we experiment and look into the atoms structure the more we break it down the more it looses its identity.

With these visual outcomes I hope to illustrate the idea of deconstructing an atomic particle the idea of distorting and using computer manipulation the image series shows the process of the atom loosing its identity.
