Come to your senses with a heady mix of presentations and activities designed to help you get in touch with the sensual world—both human and otherwise. Find out if your eyes and nose agree on who’s attractive. Discover unexpected taste receptors, and stymie your sweet tooth with a sugar-blocking tea. Take a hands-on journey through total darkness in the Tactile Dome, or immerse yourself in the hypnotic audio-visual compositions of local Super-8 filmmaker and Exploratorium Artist-in-Residence Paul Clipson. Philip Reist, Ph.D. student with the Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich will demonstrate the Blind Juggler, a robotic device that relies on mathematics (rather than sensors) to keep a ball in play. Plus, hedgehogs have been invited, new exhibits will be tested, special films will be screened, and more.
