This After Dark, the Exploratorium hit repeat on favorite memories. Guests explored the fascinating worlds of reminiscence and repetition—and then backwards skated through their own nostalgia on our temporary roller rink. In this new series of short works, local Super-8 filmmaker and Exploratorium Artist-in-Residence Paul Clipson gets up close and personal with a dynamic cast of dragonflies, spiders, ants, butterflies, and slugs. These lyrical and concentrated studies reveal the world as more complicated, ugly, and beautiful than we had ever imagined. Accompanied by a newly-commissioned soundtrack by Berlin-based musician Jefre Cantu-Ledesma.

Join us for an exploration of new frontiers in film—where cinematic artworks range beyond the screen to encompass unique combinations of animation, objects, and live performance. On April 7, 2011 we turned the Exploratorium into a skatepark. Watch as DLX riders, Dennis Busenitz, Elissa Steamer, Major Jones, Frank Gerwer, and Peter Ramondetta demo the ramps inside the museum. In January and February of 2011, the first of the large 72" in diameter piles were driven 160 feet in to the sea floor at Piers 15 and 17 in San Francisco, the new home of the Exploratorium. These new piles were installed between the two piers and along the south apron of Pier 15. In early March, the steel casings were filled with concrete. This After Dark event was devoted to the ever-mysterious and otherworldly dimensions of sleep, darkness, and night.
The original multimedia storytelling device, puppetry dates back many thousands of years and spans cultures worldwide. Join us for a back-stage look at an artistic collaboration that brings together a composer, musicians, puppeteers, and, of course, puppets to bring a story to life.
