Dario Rodighiero

Design, Science, and Humanities


Dario is an SNSF fellow working at the Harvard Metalab, “an idea foundry, knowledge-design lab, and production studio experimenting in the networked arts and humanities”.

His research is at the intersection of science and humanities through the practice of design. He is a member of the Digital Humanities community, which is familiar to his visualizations since DH2014.

His interests include the visual representation of individuals and communities with respect to aesthetics, ethics, and self-recognition

His visual studies examine the social dynamics through the innovation of organizational charts, and the analysis of scientific communities at small and large scales.

Dario is a proud finalist of ADI Compasso d’Oro Award 2020 as part of the team An Inquiry into Modes of Existence / Reset Modernity!

“Alongside Daniele [Guido] and Donato [Ricci], Dario is part of the ‘Little Italy’ that has set up shop in the AIME offices. Apart from sharing his enthusiasm and insatiable curiosity, Dario has brought along ten years experience in designing digital interfaces. With the others on the team, he has given life and form to the daring insights of both himself and his compatriots.”
