All Ages

With the shortest day of the year fast approaching, we celebrate the bright light of cinema in this family-friendly screening and farewell to our exhibition Gibson + Recoder: Powers of Resolution. Featuring short films with straightforward considerations of the endless possibilities of light, this screening celebrates a radiance that is always around us. From joyful experiments that result in light flying off the screen to pinhole cameras and obscura images, each film approaches the magic of light with curiosity and creativity. The screening will end with a viewing of the installation Obscurus Projectum, which turns the Exploratorium’s Kanbar Forum into a room-sized camera obscura.
