Ken collaborates with Learning Studio staff, sharing ideas and techniques on electronics and interactive art. He is currently undertaking a year-long effort to film the San Francisco sky every day. Currently, an image of the sky is being captured every 10 seconds from a camera installed on the roof of the Exploratorium. The images collected over each 24-hour period are assembled into a 6 minute movie called “A History of the Sky.”
The final piece will consist of a large projected grid of 365 movies, each representing one day of the year, and cycling in parallel through consecutive 24-hour periods. The viewer can stand back and observe the atmospheric phenomena of an entire year in just a few minutes, or approach the piece to focus on a particular day.
