This is the second time that "A shot in the dark nights of absence" by Diogo da Cruz is presented to the public, a sculpture that tries to capture the shapes and essence of a machine that, deep buried in an Italian mountain, tries to find clues of the hypothetical existence of dark matter.
The second iteration, after Serralves Museum, makes use of the space in TUM´s Department of Physics foyer. A podium-like place that allows the viewer to approach the sculpture from the side and from the front.
