With great pleasure we launched the Sun Cinema last week at the Imperial Festival. Running wholly on natural light we showed short films in a pool of light. Here is footage of the team putting it together and welcoming visitors.
Lately we have also focused our attention on envisioning beautiful and essential concepts from nature by developing new conventions which help us intuit what is happening. Here are two atoms - helium and carbon displaying their energy levels and two other essential features that give the atom aspects of its character (spin and angular momentum).

Atoms 'speak' to light when electrons move from one concentric circle (or energy state) in our pictures to another, this is resonance. In this new film, I try to explain resonance, the beautiful phenomenon that occurs everywhere and at every scale in Nature and which may offer clues to happiness.
Finally, I recommend the glorious works of sculptor Alexander Calder who came from three generations of artists and trained originally as an engineer. His mobiles and stabiles from the mid forties are the exceptional jewels amongst his work. They are mesmerising conversations with Nature, humble and powerful in their economy, making visible the forces at play. Shown here at Pace Gallery and which I urge you to see before June 7 when the exhibition closes.
