Exhibition Conversation [Online]: Ann Druyan, The Golden Record, and the Memory of Our Hearts
March 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
What do we owe to the memory of each other’s hearts?
From her work in the 1970s as the Creative Director for NASA’s Voyager Interstellar Messaging Project to her current role as writer and producer of the beloved television series Cosmos, Ann Druyan has devoted her life to expanding the horizons of human empathy and communication. In insisting that the thresholds of cosmic exploration must be approached with sincerity, humility, and generosity, she has had a deep influence on artist Dario Robleto’s work throughout his career. Druyan and Robleto will be joined in conversation with The Heart’s Knowledge exhibit catalogue contributor Jennifer Roberts, Professor of the Humanities at Harvard, who is co-authoring a book with Robleto about the interstellar journey of the pulse wave recordings that Druyan included on the Voyager Golden Record.
