After Dark: Time
As springtime ebbs and the summer solstice approaches, Exploratorium After Dark considers Time. Come experiment with and experience time - stopped, slow, quick, slow, quick, detectable, and undetectable - through enticing exhibits, suspenseful artworks and installations, and special performances and presentations, including a discussion of the 10,000-year clock with Alexander Rose, Executive Director of the Long Now Foundation, a relatively quick exploration of the theory of relativity with Exploratorium staffer Ron Hipschman, and music from the high-tempo percussion-based band Mission Delirium.
Not a theater, cabaret, or gallery, Exploratorium's After Dark contains aspects of all three. Each evening showcases a different topic - from music to sex to electricity - but all include a cash bar and film screenings, plus an opportunity to play with our hundreds of hands-on exhibits.
