Life in Picoseconds, the 23rd experiment at Le Laboratoire, is a collaboration between French design team Millimetre, video artist and scientist Charles Reilly, artist Daniel Faust, artist and researcher Anna Ondaatje, and Le Laboratoire founder David Edwards. Integral to the Life in Picoseconds experience is an extraordinary new form of digital representation, the Atom Screen.  
 
In the exhibition, several works by New York-based photographer / artist Daniel Faust, taken from his recent exhibition Silicon in San Jose, California, appear next to a large vertical Atom Screen. The Atom Screen uses two panes of translucent plastic about an inch apart and filled with about five quarts of polystyrene beads suspended in air like the balls in a lotto machine. The beads act like pixels—when light hits them, they reflect it with an almost holographic dimensionality  
 
Further into  the exhibition, a second, larger Atom Screen hangs in the center of the gallery. Particles rush in ceaseless motion and provide a kind of thermal agitation to the original film Life in Picoseconds by Charles Reilly.  Visitors can walk around the Atom Screen and observe Life in Picoseconds as a positive or negative moving image or sit and experience the entire unfolding process, which lasts around 20 minutes.  
 
Life in Picoseconds is an interdisciplinary exploration of aesthetic representation in the digital medium where the substrate becomes an active partner to the projected digital image, in the way analog materials participated in the abstraction of modern art.
 
This project is supported by the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University.
