The project speaks, in a poetic key, about possible ways of representing the interaction of high-energy particles with the Earth's atmosphere. As an area of scientific research with relatively few immediate applications in the social sphere, it allowed me to approach the philosophy of science and the poetics of theoretical physics. It was the first artistic project in Romania on this topic in which I analyzed and reassembled a block of scientific data (provided by the Pierre Auger Observatory in Argentina, through the Institute of Space Science - ISS in Măgurele) in a minimalist logic, with narrative accents, using specific laboratory experiments and various performative situations. The project was made in 2021, with Dr. Gina Isar from the Institute of Space Sciences as scientific collaborator.
The project was produced for Fusion Air 2021, Bucharest.
