Angel of the Higgs Boson

Via symmetry breaking, here’s a neat video of artist Josef Krisofoletti painting a stylized image of ATLAS on the side of the Redux Contemporary Art Center in Charleston, SC:

But no art (nor science) comes to the public without some misunderstanding:

“As with the creation of the real ATLAS detector, Kristofoletti faced a few setbacks along the way. Approached by a policeman who thought he was covering the wall with graffitti, he explained what he was doing and that the painting was of one of the particle detectors at CERN. The policeman had heard of CERN and the LHC, and let the painting continue, but not without a quick discussion of much-publicized doomsday scenarios.”
