Description

The Exploratorium commissioned San Francisco artist Douglas Hollis to create the newest public artwork in our Over the Water series. Archimedes, is a reimagined, thirtieth anniversary edition of Listening Vessels, a beloved and iconic Exploratorium exhibit. Hollis originally created Listening Vessels for the Berkeley Art Museum Matrix program in 1987 and gifted the work to the Exploratorium soon after.

Made of cast bronze and installed on the Exploratorium’s Plaza, Archimedes is comprised of two 8-foot diameter dish-like chairs placed 80 feet apart. Each dish’s parabolic curve collects and focuses sound waves and reflects them to participants seated within them.
