The Visual Collider – Vela Luka

On September 10th 2008, billions of particles were smashed together in nano-seconds to
recreate the first moments of the Big Bang, in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s
most powerful particle accelerator. Thousands of scientists worked for decades to achieve
this scientific spectacle “challenging those who seek confirmation of established knowledge,
and those who dare to dream beyond the paradigm”. Nina Czegledy and Marcus Neustetter
were so inspired by a lecture on the LHC that while they had already deliberated and tested
project ideas for several months, they immediately adopted a fresh approach, which led to The
Visual Collider.

For the first exhibited manifestation of The Visual Collider, Nina Czegledy and Marcus
Neustetter are presenting a small segment of their larger vision of an ongoing collision of
images and impressions that take place with each experience by both artists. In some sense,
the exhibition in Korcula becomes a sketch for a Visual Collider that, much like the LHC, can
produce data through reaction, some of which is measured and some of which we are not able
to comprehend or express.
