“What does one gift to the only woman whose heart has left the solar system?”
This seemingly simple question launched artist Dario Robleto on a journey to understand the symbolic power of the human heartbeat. Inspired by a childhood encounter with the recorded heartbeat of Ann Druyan on the famed Golden Record that accompanied Voyager II beyond the solar system, Robleto’s artistic practice brought him into dialogue with scientists and researchers working on the cutting edge of astrophysics and neuroscience.
In this public conversation, Dario Robleto and Art Papers editor + artistic director Sarah Higgins will address questions about what art can bring to the most speculative spaces of science and technology. Claim your free tickets.
Art Papers is an Atlanta-based nonprofit organization with an educational mission to provide accessible forums for documenting, examining, commissioning, and presenting contemporary art and culture in the world today. They do this in print, online, and in-person through their magazine, website, and live programs respectively. They support the careers of working artists and writers, connect Atlanta and its cultural community to the global art world, and explore the ways in which art is both a lens to better understand the world around us, and a tool for creating vibrant communities.
