Can an artificial hand feel like part of your body? How do you know you're really paying attention to what's going on in front of you? Tonight at After Dark, we spotlight exhibits that probe the nature of human perception. Consider the ways we see color, the powerful role of attention in determining what we see (and what we don't see), and fascinating optical illusions whose disorienting patterns help scientists better understand how our visual systems work.

Please note: Food and drinks will be available to purchase in our Seaglass Restaurant and enjoy there or outdoors in Gallery 5 during After Dark.

Just for Tonight
DJ Marc Stretch from Hip Hop for Change
Phyllis T Wattis Studio
6:30–7:45 and 8:15–9:30 p.m.

Get ready to dance your way through the night as DJs from Hip Hop for Change set the vibe and keep the party moving all night! Tonight we feature Marc Stretch, one half of the Heavyweight Crates crew and the founder of the Futureshock First Friday monthly party in Oakland. He's known for his unconventional remix-style party-rocking pedigree. He has traveled the world with his sound and opened for some of the biggest names in Hip Hop.

Hip Hop for Change is an Oakland-based nonprofit that uses grassroots activism to educate people about socioeconomic injustices and advocate solutions through hip-hop culture.

Towards a Holographic Panoptics of the Mind
Exploratorium Artist-in-Residence Tristan Duke in conversation with writer Lawrence Weschler around Duke's new work, Aperture Lucida.
Kanbar Forum
8:00 p.m.

At first the thing presents itself as a thick black monolith, hovering in midair at the heart of a gleaming white cube of a room—or wait, not a monolith, two monoliths perpendicularly wedged, the one fast against the other. And nested there, four feet out from where the dense black plinths intersect, floats an amorphous immaterial globe of light, which seems to bob in rhythm with each step the visitor takes toward it, or rather toward the crowd of other visitors already gathered round it, drop-jawed before the stupefying apparition. But go ahead, join them, and in fact summon up the gumption to step between them so as to lean your head into the ball of light, at which point, like magic, the entire black edifice will simply disappear.
