Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya muses on her ephemeral outdoor creation for the Exploratorium—the Fog Bridge—explaining it as both an homage to San Francisco and a conversation with nature itself.
Fog Bridge #72494 |
Artist: Fujiko Nakaya |
April 17 through September 16, 2013 |
Fujiko Nakaya’s fog installation stretches across the 150-foot-long pedestrian bridge that spans the water between Piers 15 and 17.

San Francisco's meteorological landscape is as unique as its social landscape. Tune in as we investigate why our city has many microclimates.
In this short interview with Dan Goods, designer, artist, and visual strategist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Goods discusses his art piece, "Jupiter Fog Pool." The piece, inspired by the Juno mission to Jupiter, was part of "Cosmological Constructs," our After Dark event of September 2010. Despite my better judgment, I invite TI staff educator Eric Muller to do one more set of activities—several things you can do with soda straws.
Cheer on the competitors in this zany science cook-off. Teachers compete before a live audience at the Exploratorium for the revered title, "Iron Science Teacher." This week's secret ingredient: batteries. TI staff educator Eric Muller hits me up for change, and then demonstrates a neat science activity using dry ice.
An introduction to the cuica (pronounced KWEE-kah), a small friction drum used in Brazil's Carnival parade. A detailed demonstration of how to make this small friction drum, including a discussion of materials needed and how different kinds of materials make for cuicas that produce different sounds. The science behind this musical instrument, including the concepts of sound, vibration, resonance, and amplification.
