WOLFGANG² by David Fathi
A collection of works by French artist David Fathi.
By recontextualizing CERN's archive photos, Fati explores the Pauli Effect transmitted to CERN. The Pauli effect was mysteriously generated during an experiment by Wolfgang Pauli, a Swiss physicist who won the Nobel Prize in 1985 on the recommendation of Einstein and one of the leading experts in quantum mechanics. It refers to the phenomenon of damage to equipment and failure of experiments.
Pauli passed away just before CERN's archives began, but these photos of accidents and failed experiments show that he is still alive through the Pauli effect. The photos are recorded by interweaving those that are used as they are and those that have been processed by Fatty.
