Unification of knowledge

As an enthusiast of molecular biology and bioinformatics, Davis uses all available mediums to create his work - from genetic material to magnetic fields and bionic organs (Davis himself has an artificial leg). The scientific community particularly welcomes his experiments with DNA data. Among his famous projects are the "Audio Microscope", that allows us to “hear” the sound emitted by living cells; the "Milky Way", where he put a map of the Milky Way into the ear of a transgenic mouse and the “New Age Ruby Falls” — a project aimed at creating an artificial aurora using a 100,000 watt electron beam fired into the magnetosphere.

For his project Bacterial Radio (electrical circuits created with bacteria) Davis received Golden Nica of the Prix Ars Electronica.

Davis began to collaborate with MIT in 1981 when he was appointed Lecturer of architecture. In 1989, he joined the laboratory of molecular structures and became interested in what is called transformative science - a field that studies everything that goes beyond established scientific paradigms, or, if put simply, - everything that brings science forward and sideways. Currently, Davis is looking for traces of "pre-Earth" life in the wreckage of meteorites that are over 4.5 billion years old. Among other things, he is trying to find out whether laboratory mice can be predisposed to be lucky.

At Polytech360, Joe Davis will give a lecture on how art can influence the development of science. According to the scientist, the future belongs to interdisciplinary knowledge.

The lecture will be held in English with simultaneous interpretation.

Joe Davis
Artist, a researcher at the Department of Biology, MIT. One of the pioneers in the field of bio art. This is an area of knowledge where artists and scientists, using creative methods and technologies, study how living tissues and organisms work. They also do research on the ethical and social aspects of biological science and the concept of “life” in general.
