Driven:  Flowers on the Freeway (Slideshow)
Running Time:
04:45
Hayes Valley Farm is a community-run farm on a former freeway in the middle of San Francisco. The land was slated for condo development but the plan was put off when the economy slumped. Out of the ashes of that dream arose a utopia of a different sort; a suspended reality where fruit trees are grown on what was once a freeway on-ramp choked with cars. Now there are flowers growing out of the double yellow lines, and constant opportunities for children and adults to learn how to grow food and to get dirty doing it. Although the farm has only an "interim use" permit, meaning that it can't last forever, farmers Zoey Kroll and Jay Rosenberg know that the enduring harvest of this project--the truth that even the most outlandish-sounding things are possible if we make them so--will far outlive the farm itself.

Driven:  Meet the Stars (Slideshow)
Running Time:
00:04:40
Astronomer Dr. Isabel Hawkins's journey to the stars began with two chance moments of enchantment with celestial bodies in her native Argentina. Inspired by the mystery of the sky, she went on to study physics and astronomy in California and then to work for 20 years as a research astronomer at UC Berkeley. Now retired from research and devoted to inciting a love of the stars and sky in young people, Dr. Hawkins reflects on her own initial moments of inspiration, on sharing her love of stars with others, and on how astronomy can, and should, remind us of our connection to one another, under a canopy of mystery.

Driven:  My New Wilderness (Slideshow)
Running Time:
00:05:08

The Wave Organ is a wave-activated sound sculpture located at the end of a jetty in the San Francisco Bay. It was created by artist Peter Richards and master stonemason George Gonzalez in 1986.

The installation is an unlikely sight: a collection of curbstones and cemetery stones that appear in the Bay like an ancient ruin or a strange dream. In this unusual place of discovery and contemplation, the musical phenomenon is only part of the point.

In this audio slideshow, Peter Richards, now a senior artist at the Exploratorium, shares his inspiration for creating this piece and explores its function as a theater in which many different kinds of human experiences unfold.
