Science in the City:  The Art of 3D Printing (Clip)
Running Time:
00:08:00
3D printing, the process of making three-dimensional solid objects of virtually any shape from a digital model, has become a tool that some artists are incorporating into their process of making art. Ash Martin of 3D Systems, sculptor Bruce Beasley, Autodesk artist-in-residence Scott Kildall, and the founders of the Smith|Allen Studio show us not only how this technology works, but how it can be used in creative and innovative ways.

Arts at the Exploratorium:  Paul Clipson: Exploratorium Cinema Artist in Residence (Clip)
Running Time:
00:04:26
The Exploratorium has commissioned San Francisco-based filmmaker Paul Clipson to create an abstract 16mm film study of the area surrounding our new downtown waterfront site at Pier 15. The film showcases Clipson's extraordinary treatment of the complex natural and cultural systems in the urban landscape, from the ephemeral rhythms of light and water to the rigid order of crosswalks and skyscrapers. Clipson’s work generally involves live collaborative performances with sound artists and musicians. For this film, an original soundtrack will be written and performed by composer Tashi Wada.

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.
