Covariance was the first in a programme of artists-in-residence commissioned by the Institute of Physics, London, called Superposition, which brings together artists and physicists to develop new ideas and artworks. I collaborated with Dr Ben Still, a particle physicist from Queen Mary, University of London. The installation brings together a range of different influences including the function and aesthetics of particle detectors, the way research data is analysed and visualised by physicists now and in the past and the materials used in historic scientific instruments.
