Phil Coy – Space science
Artist Phil Coy, winner of a 2010 London Artists’ Film and Video Award, became the second artist in residence at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in 2015, the first being Elizabeth Price. Coy developed his own commissioned artwork in collaboration with Dr Hugh Mortimer, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) and Dr Marek Kukula, Public Astronomer at the Royal Observatory.
Coy has been interested in satellite imagery, pixels and the mapping of Earth from the air for some time and will now have the facilities to explore it in a new and exciting way. The resulting artwork was shown at the Royal Museums Greenwich in 2015.
