Magnetic Movie
A film by Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt. Inspired by discussions with space scientists and actual recordings of magnetic field data, Semiconductor brings a delirious surrealism to NASA’s Space Sciences Laboratory at UC Berkeley.
The Seeing Gallery becomes an artists’ studio—a space for artists-in-residence Jessica Miller, Adam Hathaway, and John Edmark to share ideas with Exploratorium educators, scientists, and exhibit developers and to experiment with new methods of working.
