Join us at the (virtual) Exploratorium this month for Odd Salon DECAY, an Exploratorium Residency!
Odd Salon DECAY
Stories of disintegration & decomposition, deep time, dead science, & the reclamation of nature
We are so excited to bring Odd Salon to the Exploratorium as part of a month-long residency, featuring three Exploratorium After Dark Online programs on October 8, 15, and 29.
Dig into deep time and glimpse geologic processes that form our planet and its habitable conditions. From the Big Bang onward, elements and atoms have been colliding, combining, transforming, and deteriorating, resulting in our current snapshot of the universe. In this program, explore evidence that reveals the story of this formation and clues to its inevitable disintegration.
Amy Widdowson ~ Florence Bascom: America’s First Lady Rock Star
How hard work, determination, grit, and familial support helped a woman overcome fin de siecle gender barriers and re-write geologic time.
Kit Rackley ~ The Anthropocene: Does Arrogance Outlast Decay?
Humans have been a ‘force of nature’ for only a few thousand years, depending on who you listen to. So it is arrogant to suggest a whole new geological epoch based on our actions? What human artifacts will be left after millions of years of decay?
