'Finding Patterns' is about Nature, the adventure of discovery and how we can express what we know in new ways. The project began on April 1st 2011 in the Physics Department of Imperial College London

Here you will find conversations from the early months of the project and a journal where I gather my thoughts from time to time. There is a gallery of images and one of experimental films. Large scale projects have their own webpages: the Poems About Light exhibition; Sun Cinema, a pop up cinema running on sunshine and Made Curious, a roadside billboard project. Artworks resulting from focused studies are also gathered under the projects section like this study of an experiment to measure the Shape of the Electron and Nature's Imagination that shares our understanding of nature at the smallest scales. There is a new section of recent short writings and a growing scrapbook of interesting things from art, science and life.

Good places to start are my first journal entry and my understanding of physics

I would like to thank the people at Imperial College Physics department and others around the globe who have shared their ways of seeing the world and been so encouraging. In particular, thank you to Terry Rudolph for helping get our project started and his ongoing support.

Thank you also to the Leverhulme Trust for enabling the first year of the project with a Leverhulme Trust Artist in Residence Award and to the Physics Department of Imperial College for warmly hosting and supporting Finding Patterns.
