Events change your life. A quantum event implies an image. Without an image, there is no event. Experimental physics and visual art share this concern. A particle, like a work of art, needs to be seen be believed; needs to be captured (made, wrapped) and presented then, as an undeniable physical fact. Art events assume many forms, like The Thing Quarterly wrapping party. Events from two experiments; ATLAS (at the LHC) and BaBar (at PEP-II) on the right, look like this:
