One of the Exploratorium’s current artists-in-residence, Paul Clipson, presents a new film installation piece in the museum’s Storefront Space, an exhibition site located in the Skylight area of the museum. The yet-to-be-titled work features multiple video projections and their accompanying soundtracks played in a random shuffle. The effect of Clipson's installation is a hypnotic and ever-changing audio-visual composition, and a study in various forms of light in the immersive environment of this space.

Paul Clipson is a filmmaker and experimental film artist whose work usually involves projected installation, as well as live collaborative performances utilizing sound. His works have been exhibited and performed both nationally as well as internationally. Clipson's largely improvised, in-camera-edited super-8mm films often employ multiple exposures, dissolves and macro imagery. These projections are intended to bring to light subconscious preoccupations and unexpected visual forms.
