Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art
Part storytelling, original research and rare sound archive, artist Dario Robleto’s The Pulse Armed With a Pen: An Unknown History of the Human Heartbeat will weave together topics as diverse as the earliest attempts to record the heartbeat as sound and image, the heartbeat and brainwave recordings currently on a probe heading for the edge of the Solar System, pre-Edison sound recordings, and recent developments in the history of the artificial heart. The result is a creative intertwining of multiple histories of human exploration, in both outer and inner space. Dario Robleto's work is on view in the Block Museum exhibition If You Remember, I'll Remember. This program is organized by the Block Museum of Art; RSVP for this free program at https://www.facebook.com/events/424064227940828/.
