About "Reflections":
This summer at the Exploratorium, prepare to see yourself in unexpected ways. Erik Thogersen takes you on a journey through Reflections, a strange and fun collection of interactive exhibits - including a giant 12-foot NASA mirror that transports you into a world of detail you've never encountered before. The installations from visiting artist Daniel Rozin and other exhibits distort and surprise by employing mirrored surfaces, lights and computers. Tantalize your senses like never before as you step into a kaleidoscope to produce the illusion of a never-ending crowd of your likeness, marvel as a customizable skeleton is superimposed onto your reflection, and construct an eerie self-portrait using a video snow system. Designed to transform your presence - and how you think about your appearance - this special exhibition is on view now through September 20, 2009.
