Artist Geraldine Cox works with physicists to find resonant new expression for the beautiful things we have discovered and inspires others to do the same: children construct mobiles celebrating atoms, dancers absorb and emit light, grown-ups cut intricate paper photons for a giant collage of sunlight, and in mesmerising paintings of 30,000 pieces, Geraldine reveals connections between two entangled particles. Everyone benefits from expanded imaginations and enduring new perspectives.
