“Wilson Tour Majestic” is installed on the facade of the museum and it is the result of direct collaboration between the artist and the researchers of CMS Experiment – CERN (The European Organization for Nuclear Research) and it consists of a PVC digital print (6 x 25,5 meters) depicting the largest particle detector at the Large Hadron Collider of Geneva, in front of which were “pasted” in digital post-production a series of giant  Wilson tennis balls deliberately distorted. The most ambitious machine ever built by humankind – intended for probing the mysteries of the universe by crashing particle beams at creazy energies – becomes a kind of bridge between two dimensional spaces and two disciplines: art and science. Deliberately installed at the MEF facade this giant digital window becomes a kind of “star gate” for the visitor.
