The Boundary of Life is Quietly Crossed

September 12, 2014 6:30pm


Artist Dario Robleto has explored love, loss, grief, and other universal aspects of the human condition throughout his career, often distilling these complex states into meditations on fragility and change. The Boundary of Life is Quietly Crossed revolves around his most recent area of inquiry: the largely unexplored history of the human heartbeat as sound. This lecture draws on his extensive research into the earliest attempts to record the heartbeat as sound and image, the heartbeat and brainwave recordings on a probe currently headed toward the edge  of the Solar System, and recent developments in the evolution of the artificial heart.
