In September 2011, in an underground laboratory in Italy, researchers could not quite believe what they were seeing. They recorded tiny particles (neurtinos) fired from another lab in Switzerland, seven hundred kilometres away, arriving sooner than expected. Sooner even than a beam of light would have done! Visual artist and filmmaker Mels van Zutphen, fascinated by science and technology, decided to create an artistic and slightly ironic visual statement on these scientific events. He followed the track of the neutrinos from Cern to Gran Sasso by car in twelve days. A neutrino only needs 0,0024 seconds to travel this distance.
