Social Collider Theory is a sculptural representation of our fast paced sphere of social connections and paths. Today our capacity for social connection and interaction is broadening, speeding up and shrinking the distance between our own circle and that of others. People move in their own busy circles and at times will collide with others when circles cross paths. Our paths collide; we connect, build new circles and broaden the momentum.

The thought process for this sculpture began while taking an interest in the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest and highest energy particle accelerator. In ultimately very basic terms The Large Hadron Collider was originally designed to collide two opposing particle beams to assist in answering questions concerning interactions and forces among elementary objects, deep structure of space and time and the interrelation between quantum mechanics and general relativity.
