I am currently drinking chocolate milk, and eating a peanut-butter-and-strawberry-jelly sandwich for lunch. Life is good.

Magnetic Movie
A Film Installation by Semiconductor (Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt)
Continues Through May 31, 2009
In the Seeing Gallery

In this looping installation, the British filmmaking duo known as Semiconductor
reveals the chaotic geometries of hidden magnetic fields in and around NASA’s
Space Sciences Laboratory at UC Berkeley. Filmed as the artists tried to come to
grips with the science they explored, Magnetic Movie originates with magnetic
fields in relation to the Sun, Earth and Mars, and the techniques space scientists
use to visualize them. As scientists describe their discoveries, vivid animations
of magnetic fields undulate and pop to sounds of electromagnetic signals from
the Earth’s ionosphere and magnetosphere. This event is included in the price of
admission to the Exploratorium.
