NaN is a numeric data type value representing an undefined or unrepresentable value. Collider refers to an opposite concept to that, something very concrete, used as a research tool in particle physics by accelerating particles to very high kinetic energy.

NaN:Collider is an artistic audiovisual performance exploring the aesthetic around space exploration.

In this project, the two artists propose the exploration of data, techniques, algorithms and representations inspired in the context of research and development around space exploration, creating an imagined audiovisual presentation. The public will be invited to travel into a minimal aesthetic universe.
