Geraldine Cox

Geraldine’s work is about finding resonant ways to express hidden aspects of nature and the journey of discovery. This research has taken her to the heart of the atom, the beginnings of the Universe and the essence of light. She has bachelor’s degrees in Physics and Painting and a Leverhulme Trust Artist in Residence Award for her residency at the Physics Department of Imperial College London. She also works with colleagues at other places such as Durham, Oxford and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Geraldine uses various media to share perspectives on the experience of discovery and some of the beautiful things we know through art including painting, printed fabrics, books, film, text, talks and large installations such as advertising billboards and a sunshine powered cinema.

Geraldine has worked with the SunSaceArt team in many schools. See for example her journals on “Solar Creativity”  and “Reflections from a Pale Blue Dot” . In collaboration with Dagny Kimberly Yousuf and atomic physicists at Imperial, Durham and Oxford Universities, she is currently prototyping a new workshop called ‘Atom Day’ that shares and celebrates with eight year old children the Universe beneath our fingertips.

Geraldine says: ‘SunSpaceArt is about exploring and celebrating our world. What better rocket ship can there be than the infiitely elastic and creative imagination of a child.’
