Dario Robleto (b. Protected content that artists and scientists share a common aspiration: to increase the sensitivity of their observations. His exhibit, "The Heart’s Knowledge" concentrates on a period of deepening engagement with histories of medicine, biomedical engineering, sound recording, and space exploration. Throughout the history of scientific invention, instruments like the cardiograph and the telescope have extended the reach of perception from the tiniest stirrings of the human body to the farthest reaches of space. In his prints, sculptures, and video and sound installations, Robleto contemplates the emotional significance of these technologies, bringing us closer to the latent traces of life buried in the scientific record.
After we visit the exhibit we will join a discussion Protected content with the artist and others to to reflect on these questions: What are the tools that artists and scientists use to observe and measure the unknown? How might we use those tools collaboratively to construct new pathways of human understanding across time and distance? How might shared values of empathy, care, and curiosity guide such pursuits?
