Baltan Laboratories, Holst Centre, and High Tech Campus Eindhoven invited Joe Davis for the first in a new series of ‘Friday afternoon lectures’. Referencing his own vast and varied art-science research, he showed why boundaries between disciplines, like art and science, should cease to exist because they limit true free-thinking.
Part free-spirited artist and part mad scientist, Davis is a maverick in both circles. Davis has been embraced as a genius by some and dismissed as crazy by others. But in the world of scientific art, Davis is a pioneer and a legend. He has spent the last few decades as a “research affiliate” at MIT and has also worked as an “artist-scientist” at Harvard Medical School, where he has a lab in the Longwood Medical Area.
