With a roll of thin plastic diffraction grating and some "stolen" sunlight, artist and exhibit developer Pete Stephens transformed the interior of the Palace of Fine Arts into a dazzling riot of spectral color. As he works to recreate the effect at the new Exploratorium at Pier 15, Stephens recounts the challenges—and the inspiration—of this expansive experiment in light. This buoy will be anchored near the Exploratorium for six months, monitoring the acid levels of the bay and transmitting data to NOAA via satellite. This research will give NOAA scientists a better understanding of how the rising acid levels in the ocean are affecting very diverse things such as fish behavior, larvae development, and even plankton. As part of the festivities in honor of the Exploratorium's opening at Pier 15, Obscura Digital, internationally recognized creative technology innovators, transformed the historic façade of Pier 15 into a spectacular, interactive odyssey through micro and macro phenomena on multiple time scales. There’s no mistaking the distinct voice—whether throbbing, singing, or screaming—of an electric guitar. How does one instrument produce so many different sounds? We visit with Bay Area electric guitarists Ava Mendoza and Henry Kaiser, plus Subway Guitars’ very own Fat Dog, to explore the components of this versatile instrument, getting down to pick-ups, “pots,” and pedals that make it sing. Since 1969, the Exploratorium has set the standard for hands-on, inquiry-based education. See how our new Pier 15 home, with its new exhibits and expanded resources, is helping us achieve our mission: to change the way the world learns.
For our first episode in a new season of "Science in the City," we explore the creation of a bell for the Exploratorium’s new home at Pier 15.
Artist Nick Diphillipo has been designing and casting bells and other objects for over thirty years. He teaches bell making at The Crucible in Oakland, California, as well as other foundry-related subjects.
