Light Year

Exploratorium Cinema Artist-in-Residence and San Francisco–based filmmaker Paul Clipson has created Light Year (2013), an abstract 16mm film study of the area surrounding our new downtown waterfront site at Pier 15. The film showcases Clipson’s extraordinary treatment of the Embarcadero as a complex natural and cultural system within this urban landscape, from the ephemeral rhythms of light and water to the rigid order of crosswalks and skyscrapers.
