The artwork titled “MAP” presented here is surprising in a way. The students of Liceo Benedetti who produced it (Matteo Bertola, Alberto Perosa, Giacomo Indri) exhibited quite a bit of imagination in creating a “particle” accelerator using kitchenware: a manual salad dryer. They inserted three coloured plastic balls in it, added some coloured wire to the exterior of the rotating cell, and that is it: the MAP.

The pictures below do not pay justice to the concept, as what should be done is to turn the handle and set the balls in motion, then observe them from the outside as they spin and their colours merge in a whitish hue.
