  • Life in Picoseconds
    On view through June 10
    Le Laboratoire Cambridge, 650 East Kendall Street
    Experience a new form of digital representation, the Atom Screen, at Kendall Square’s chic Le Laboratoire. A collaboration between French design team Millimetre, video artist and scientist Charles Reilly, artist Daniel Faust, artist and researcher Anna Ondaatje, and Le Laboratoire founder David Edwards, the Atom Screen represents a new impressionistic movement in digital screen technology that departs from the advance of digital screens toward hyper-realistic representation. Still and moving images appear on swirls of particles that move in chaotic and prescribed ways between glass panels, producing unusual, abstract, and realistic representations that convey emotive, artistic, and scientific impressions.​
