Is it a painting or a sculpture ? While it can definitely be hung on a wall, I would rather classify “Eye” as a sculpture than a painting. The three students of Liceo “Benedetti” who produced the artwork presented here are Asia Andrianelli, Federico Avanzi and Ilaria Buricelli. They assembled over a board painted in lucid black an image that was inspired by a picture of a section of the LHC collider. They reasoned that through that device man can look with Science into the subnuclear world, like an electronic eye.

The materials used are cardboard, wood, acrilic paint, nails, cotton thread, and electric wires and glass. You can see it in the pictures below.
