    About The Work

    Todd Eberle, obsessed with technology from childhood, has explored the subject in its many forms and phases. From his series of images of vintage computers, wired, shown in 1999, it was a natural trajectory to visit and photograph CERN, the most advanced science experiment in history. This photograph is a study of the bewildering scale and magnitude of just one of four massive caverns that house the large hadron collider. Buried 300 feet below ground and connected by a 17-mile tunnel traversing the border of Switzerland and France, the experiment when active makes the caverns inaccessible to all human beings. What appears to be a set for a science fiction film is actually much stranger than fiction due to its very real function.

    Eberle subverts this complex and extraordinarily scaled environment into a pop-colored, gridded abstract composition.
