Light and collisions: Julius von Bismark presents an update on his work after his CERN Residency

On 27 June 2012, Julius von Bismarck, the first winner of the Prix Ars Electronica Collide@CERN, will give a special informal interim lecture for CERN on his ideas and work in progress.


Julius will disclose his personal reactions to his experiences at CERN, sharing with us how particle physics and the laboratory has started having an impact on his artistic practice. As he said when he won the prize at the first Collide@CERN public lecture: “For me, the Collide@CERN residency is a dream come true.” So has reality matched up with his dreams? And why in the first two weeks did he say: “For me already the residency is already a success.” What is his experience of the creative collisions between arts and science?

There will be opportunities for the audience to ask questions, and the artist stresses that this will be a personal and informal presentation of ideas in progress.

The lecture will take place in the Council Chamber (Room 503-1-001) from 4.30 pm to 5.30 pm.
