Brighton Festival

Semiconductor

HALO

UK Premiere

HALO is a large-scale immersive installation made by renowned Brighton based artist duo Semiconductor following a residency at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics.

Step into an intricate mechanical structure operated by data collected at CERN which recreates the conditions shortly after the Big Bang. HALO is a multisensory experience of matter formation in the early universe generated through projections and sound played out upon hundreds of vertical piano strings. Allowing us to look at and listen to this data gives audiences a sense of something bigger than themselves, inspiring awe and wonder at the complexity of nature, and at the elaborate systems humans create to understand the world around them.

This event is free of charge - audiences can come and go as they choose within the installation opening times, 12pm - 8pm.

Semiconductor is Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt who are known for their innovative artworks which explore the material nature of our world and how we experience it through the lenses of science and technology, blending experimental moving image techniques, scientific research and digital technologies.

[There will be a series of free workshops and events accompanying HALO. Join Semiconductor in discussion with Mónica Bello, Head of Arts at CERN and University of Sussex CERN scientists, and take part in hands-on creative activities for families and young people.

HALO is an Audemars Piguet Art Commission, curated by Mónica Bello and first presented at in the context of Art Basel in Basel (2018) in collaboration with CERN. HALO at Brighton Festival is supported by Arts Council England and co-produced by Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts. HALO events programme is produced by Lighthouse and part of Re-Imagine Europe and co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union and University of Brighton as part of DRIVA Arts DRIVA (part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund).
