AESTHETICS OF THE MULTICOSM with JOE DAVIS : Free public talk presented by the Institute of Advanced Studies and SymbioticA Other events...
Artists operate within both the miniscule contexts of cells and molecules and the vastly larger macrocosm of human experience. While scientists ponder higher dimensions and the existence of multiple universes, the scope of knowledge encompasses once inconceivable reaches of space and time. Art is no longer confined to this world or even, to this universe.

For more than 30 years, Joe Davis, a research affiliate in the Department of Biology at The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has created art both physical and conceptual using diverse scientific and artistic practice.

His research and art includes areas of molecular biology, bioinformatics, "space art", sculpture, radios, prosthetics, magnetic fields, and genetic material.

As an educator Davis has worked in the MIT graduate architecture program (Master of Science in Visual Studies) and in undergraduate painting and mixed media at the Rhode Island School of Design.

Davis has exhibited in the United States, Canada and at Ars Electronica in Austria.
