Life in Picoseconds is an installation of photography, film, and new digital technology that has resulted from the 23rd experiment of Le Laboratoire. The work represents a collaboration between the French design team Millimetre, video artist and scientist Charles Reilly, artist Daniel Faust, artist and researcher Anna Ondaatje, and Le Laboratoire founder David Edwards.

Several works by New York-based photographer/artist Daniel Faust, taken from his exhibition Silicon in San Jose, California, appear next to a large vertical Atom Screen. These images, depicting starkly poetic moments and visions of Valley reality, appear on the Atom Screen as superpositions on randomly scattered particles that cover fractions of the screen surface, which disintegrate and reconfigure from minute to minute.

Daniel Faust is a photographer whose archive presently consists of 35,000 images from travels across the United States, Europe, Asia, South Africa, the Middle East, Brazil, India, New Zealand and elsewhere.
