Northwestern Professor of Biomedical and Mechanical Engineering Malcolm MacIver researches the relationship between sense perception, cognition, and evolution. This dialogue between the scientist and Dario Robleto will explore how art and science both contemplate—and seek to overcome—the physical and temporal limits of human life. The discussion will touch on the question of how art might provide a model for long-term thinking, especially in times of societal and ecological transformation.

Programs are open to all, on a first-come first-served basis. RSVPs are not required, but appreciated, as they help us anticipate attendance numbers.
