Artist in Residence, Imperial College London, Department of Physics.
Geraldine Cox is an award winning artist who originally trained in physics before studying painting. Since 2011 she has been working at the Imperial College London, Department of Physics on her project ‘Finding Patterns’, which searches for new ways to communicate our knowledge to more minds. Finding Patterns is a unique experiment that explores the expressive power of art to share so much of Nature that is hidden from the view of everyday life.
Geraldine is recipient of multiple awards that include two Arts Council Awards and the Leverhulme Trust Artist in Residence Award. In 2013 the Imagine Science Film Festival selected two of her short films for screening in New York. Other recent exhibitions include ‘Beyond Ourselves’ at the Royal Society, ‘Poems about Light’ at Imperial College and the MK Fringe National Painting Prize where Geraldine was a finalist. Geraldine works in varied media: drawing, painting, writing and film through to large scale installations such as giant billboards and a Sun powered pop up cinema; she also gives illustrated talks; all with the aim of sharing the experience of discovery and some of the beautiful things we know through art.
