An essential practice for both scientists and artists, observation is key to navigating many Exploratorium experiences. With a little patience, our powers of perception deliver information, surprises, and deeper understanding. Join us for a series of inspiring short films and watch as wonders are revealed.

Frame (1990, 3 min.), by Lew Alquist, moves quickly through time in a single space. Watch a whole day go by in the blink of any eye.

The Unseen Sea (2010, 3 min.), by Simon Christen, offers stunning views of San Francisco's fog as it creeps, swells, and laps against buildings and hills.
