In a heart­beat: artist Dario Robleto

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Hous­ton-based artist Dario Robleto’s pre­sen­ta­tion The Pulse Armed With a Pen: An Un­known History of the Hu­man Heart­beat is a lec­ture/per­for­mance that in­ter­weaves sto­ry­telling and dis­cus­sion. Robleto takes on a di­verse range of top­ics that in­cludes early at­tempts at record­ing the hu­man heart­beat as both im­age and sound, pre-Edi­son sound record­ings, brain­wave record­ings on space probes, and med­i­cal ad­vances in ar­ti­fi­cial or­gans. Robleto is a mul­ti­me­dia artist whose works re­flect his broad in­ter­ests: science, mu­sic, and Amer­i­can history, among them. He has had solo ex­hibits at the Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art Den­ver, the Whit­ney Mu­seum of Amer­i­can Art at Al­tria, New York, the Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art San Diego, and other in­sti­tu­tions. In 2009 his art­work ap­peared on in­die rock band Yo La Tengo’s al­bum Pop­u­lar Songs. Robleto’s work is also on view in SITE Santa Fe’s cur­rent ex­hibit SITE 20 Years/20
