Lecture by Joe Davis
The mad scientist of MIT

About Joe Davis

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.

About ‘Friday afternoon lectures’

Long ago Gilles Holst, first Director of the famous Philips Natlab, already proclaimed in one of his official research reports, ‘researchers with sufficient freedom and an open mind are most likely to be successful’.

We believe Gilles Holst’s original vision for the Natlab could easily be forgotten in these times of increased specialization. Proactively addressing this issue, we, Baltan Laboratories, Holst Centre, and High Tech Campus Eindhoven, committed to setting up the initiative that revives the Natlab original spirit. Inspired by this idea, we invited Joe Davis for the first in this series of insightful lectures. Referencing his own vast and varied art-science research, he will show why boundaries between disciplines, like art and science, should cease to exist because they limit true freethinking.

Are you a researcher, artist, designer or any other creative and inspired enthusiast? Then you should not miss this unique opportunity to be inspired by top-notch speakers and to meet with like-minded souls. Our initial plan is to set up a series of four lectures over the next twelve months. As we move along, we might also add other activities to our repertoire. If you have ideas or suggestions about this initiative or if you want to structurally join our small organization team, do not hesitate to approach us.
