Reconsidering ourselves and others
- June 2019
- Made for The Exploratorium
Middle Ground is an exhibition developed by the Exploratorium and funded by the National Science Foundation.
Located in San Francisco's Civic Center on the Larken Street Entrance of the Main Library. The public is invited to look within and consider how we think, feel, and behave in relation to other people. Perhaps shedding light on bias and stereotyping, humor and generosity, how we work together, and how we pull apart into tribes.
What we did
- How easy is it to get ahead?
- Let's see what you think.
What's going on?

Does knowing the facts change how you think about people and opportunity in our society?
