Imagining the Sun, the exhibition at Theatre by the Lake, combines science, poetry and visual art. Artists and researchers from Northumbria University, along with schoolchildren, have been finding out how we can use creativity and imagination to understand our Sun.

This presentation includes extracts from a stereo mix of Sun, a poetry-and-music collaboration by Katrina Porteous and Peter Zinovieff, with photographic images realised by Chris Hudson and Jonathan Sanderson.

£8 – Book Here

A publication of science and art collaborations from the Imagining the Sun project, including images of Helen Schell’s artwork, some of Katrina Porteous’s poems, information about Peter Zinovieff’s electronic music derived from solar oscillation data, and real photographic images of the Sun, will be available from Think Physics at Northumbria University after the event. Imagining the Sun was funded by STFC.

Copies of the Imagining the Sun publication will be available free while stocks last from the Think Physics address.
