After Dark: Living Systems

White cells with yellow centers against a black background
After Dark: Living Systems

We’re all in this together—just ask the cells in your body. Stop by the Exploratorium on Thursday night to learn about the surprising and awesome ways human cells interact and work together. Observe 20 sculptural portraits made from the same person’s DNA information: how do they meet or challenge your expectations? Do you know how many blood cells are in your body, and can you sync your heartbeat to the living heart cells in our lab? Don’t miss this opportunity to take a long, hard look at the existence of yourself and others around you—down to a cellular level.
