Particle Collision #5 – The ‘God’ Particle


When I decided to go with a much more complicated ‘look’, I had a worry it might be difficult to work out, but, as I finished it last night, I thought I could have done far more. The end result pleases me, though, and my harshest critic ‘liked’ it, so who am I to fret? The ‘God Particle’ is better known as the Higgs Boson:

scientists at CERN announced that they’d found a particle that behaved the way they expect the Higgs boson to behave. Maybe the famed boson’s grand and controversial nickname, the “God Particle,” has kept media outlets buzzing. Then again, the intriguing possibility that the Higgs boson is responsible for all the mass in the universe rather captures the imagination, too.

Since there is a popular religious connection to the Higgs Boson, I decided it had to be the little spiral of purest white in the right hand quadrant and emanating from a halo of pure gold at the point of collision. Here is a detail of that atom smashing event:

  2. Great movement, and mystery here. I really like how you left some empty space and the background irregular shapes contrast beautifully with the impeccable lines and curves. Fantastic!
