The work named “Attimo” (or “instant” in English) was produced by Nicolò Doglioni, Filippo Dorigo, and Zeno Pogaznic from Liceo “Benedetti”. They were impressed by the pictures of the CMS detector and its components, and they decided to try and capture the symmetry of the detection elements in a way that makes it only apparent if you happen to end up in the correct line of sight.

The attached pictures show the construction, made of coloured wood and iron wire, and two of the authors (Dorigo and Doglioni) in front of their creation.

This work was selected to be exposed to the Casinò di Venezia at Lido during the EPS conference, July 5th to 12th, and it participates in the final selection of the best artworks by Venice high-school students.
