For a special press release on the breakthrough in the search for cosmic particle accelerators, the German Electron Synchotron DESY wanted to communicate this outstanding research event with its own visual interpretation.
Our approach was not only to create a static image, but also to show a series of high-quality animations to explain how neutrinos burst out of a supermassive black hole 2 billion light years away and are finally discovered on Earth. Our solution was not a single video, but an interactive microsite on the web. The user can follow the narrative of the neutrino’s journey himself. Designed like a one-pager scroll site, various animations can be experienced. Interactive storytelling par excellence.
The website should be viewed on a large screen and a fast computer, as the animations and renderings are very detailed and high resolution which demands some preloading: multimessenger.desy.de
