'Half Life' and CERN
There's something deeply attractive about high-technology, industrial interiors. I noticed it playing the computer game 'Half Life' some years back. It's a world of gantries, walkways, stairs, joists, cooling pipes, trusses, fluorescent lights, ventilation ducting, fans and turbines. And sound, throbbing seismically through the floors and walls. To get a flavour of this in the real-world, visit this link for a number of 360-degree panoramas of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Turn the volume up as well.
