Fall Vision Meeting

2002



Program overview:

Oct. 24th, 6:00 - 8:00 pm.


Special Evening Welcome


The Exploratorium hosted a free evening session for the opening night
of the Fall Vision Meeting, Oct 24th, 6-9 pm. FVM registration was
available, together with no-host bar and light refreshments.


    The Exploratorium is the original "hands-on" museum of science,
    art and human perception, and is currently featuring a set of 40 new
    exhibits on "Seeing" designed by staff neuroscientist Richard Brown and
    his colleagues. These new exhibits include an eyetracker and a new
    section on Visual Attention, as well as new art works complementing
    the science.

    Classic old exhibits include the historic original Ames Room and
    Ames Chair demonstrations built by Ames himself, a Land and
    McCann 2-color projection display, the Cafe Wall restroom, and
    numerous Exploratorium originals that have become the models for how
    visual science is presented at science museums around the world.

    Adelbert Ames, Jr. was the second recipient of the Tillyer Medal
    of the Optical Society of America.
