Dark Matter in Astronomy and in Art

Artist Morehshin Allahyari and astronomer Roger Malina are collaborating on a project that uses dark matter as a linking metaphor. Allahyari is currently focusing on making hidden and censored realities in Iran more visible, and is collaborating with Malina on a work that deals with his father, Frank Malina, and his problems with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Specifically, the FBI's files on Frank Malina detail the reports of an "Informant No. 11", who accused him of deliberately slowing down the allied victory in WWII.

With these projects in mind, Allahyari and Malina discuss the knowables and unknowables in human life and in the universe.
