HALO by Semiconductor

The installation will premiere at ACCA during Brighton Festival 2021

HALO is a large-scale immersive installation made by renowned Brighton based artist duo Semiconductor following a residency at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics. Step into an intricate mechanical structure operated by data collected at CERN which recreates the conditions shortly after the Big Bang.

HALO is a multisensory experience of matter formation in the early universe generated through projections and sound played out upon hundreds of vertical piano strings. Allowing us to look at and listen to this data gives audiences a sense of something bigger than themselves, inspiring awe and wonder at the complexity of nature, and at the elaborate systems humans create to understand the world around them.

Semiconductor is Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt who are known for their innovative artworks which explore the material nature of our world and how we experience it through the lenses of science and technology, blending experimental moving image techniques, scientific research and digital technologies.

HALO is part of a cultural programme by Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, Brighton.


The HALO events programme is produced by Lighthouse and is part of Re-Imagine Europe, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union and supported by Arts Council England.
