Resonance:  Dan Deacon: Performance (Clip)
Running Time:
50:37:00
Baltimore-based musician and composer Dan Deacon hooks listeners with strong melodic lines, immersed in a sea of competing rhythmic structures, distorted sound samples, and synthesized and acoustic textures. His Resonance performance at the Exploratorium featured the Disklavier, an electronic version of the player-piano. Deacon is influenced by the work of composer Conlon Nancarrow, who pioneered the use of player-pianos to explore music unplayable by human hands.

Arts at the Exploratorium:  lucky dragons’ Actual Reality (Clip)
Running Time:
00:02:40
Inspired by the works of Bob Miller (1935–2007), natural philosopher, light artist, and Exploratorium icon, Actual Reality invites us to wade into a sea of images and sounds and, through attention, catch slippery, individual moments of reality. During this multimedia performance, a video recreating one of Miller’s “Light Walks”—outdoor explorations of sunlight resolving into images through both naturally occurring pinholes and ingenious props—flows behind musicians improvising from a simple, expansive score. Through a combination of live performance and technological interventions—including a heliostat prototype Miller originally used for tracking the sun—lucky dragons playfully resolves these visual and aural streams into unique experiences of repeating elements. Actual Reality is presented in conjunction with "Light Walk: The Work of Bob Miller," an exhibition at the San Francisco Public Library on view through February 5, 2014. lucky dragons is an ongoing collaboration between Los Angeles–based artists Sarah Rara and Luke Fischbeck. Active since 2000, lucky dragons is known for an open and participatory approach to making music, radically inclusive live shows, and playful, humanistic use of digital tools. luckydragons.org

Join us for a live webcast with senior scientist Paul Doherty to discuss breaking news about the Rosetta Mission! The European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission deployed its lander, Philae, to the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko on November 12. 2014. Philae’s landing site, currently known as Site J, is located on the smaller of the comet’s two ‘lobes’, with a backup site on the larger lobe. The sites were selected just six weeks after Rosetta arrived at the comet on August 6, following its 10-year journey through the Solar System.

Light Walk captures former Exploratorium artist and "natural philosopher" Bob Miller (1935-2007) leading a portion of his fabled walk, a blend of performance art and radical pedagogy that evolved into an Exploratorium institution. Developed over many years, Bob's walk was continually nourished by the observations, questions, and astonishment of visitors, teachers, and museum staff.
