A resident of the Bay Area for over thirty years, Kahn is well known for creating installation works at the intersection of art and science that explore, mimic, and play with phenomena found in nature, and for his many years as a designer of several of the Exploratorium&rsquo;s most popular displays.</p> <p><em>Negev Wheel</em> is a colossal steel disk, twenty feet in diameter, that frames a reservoir filled with a mixture of glass beads and sand from Israel&rsquo;s Negev Desert. As it spins, avalanching sand organizes into wave patterns suggestive of churning liquids. Often the two materials separate, each flowing in different ways. In the constant mixing, unmixing, and mixing again, Kahn creates a mesmerizing piece that invites contemplation of unity and complexity, change and permanence.&nbsp;</p> <p>Alongside the larger sculpture, which is propelled by a motor, Kahn offers a second, smaller sand sculpture designed for public interaction.</p> Wed, 25 May 2016 22:11:12 +0000 Duane Hansen - Cantor Arts Center - June 1st - June 1st <p>Stanford graduate students Joseph Larnerd (Art History) and Max Suechting (Modern Thought and Literature) discuss the Cantor's sculpture--Duane Hansen's Slab Man (1974-75).</p> Wed, 25 May 2016 19:59:24 +0000 Julia Margaret Cameron, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Phil Chang, Dawoud Bey, Owen Kydd, Zoe Leonard, Jason Lazarus - SFMOMA - San Francisco Museum of Modern Art - May 14th - September 25th <div class="row"> <div class="col-sm-8"> <div class="text"> <p style="text-align: justify;">This thematic exhibition brings together work from across the medium&rsquo;s history &mdash; from daguerreotypes to slide projections to video installations &mdash; that consider the way photography&rsquo;s complex and ever-changing relationship with time has reflected and inflected our ideas about permanence and obsolescence, history and memory.
