About Heaven + Earth + Joe Davis
Thirty years ago, a peg-legged motorcycle mechanic walked into the Center for Advanced Visual Studies at MIT. They had not returned his calls. The police were summoned. Forty-five minutes later he walked out with an academic appointment. Since then Joe Davis has sent vaginal contractions into space to communicate with aliens, encoded poetry into DNA, and designed a sculpture to save the world. It’s a great life for a man driven by imagination – except when it’s not. No one pays him. He is evicted from apartments and labs. His uncompromising approach to art and life collides with the world’s banal requirements. This is a story of self- discovery, sacrifice and the complexity of human endeavor, of the price of art and the ecstatic joy of discovery.

Peter has been producing and directing film and video projects in New York City and around the world for over a decade.

Universal artist, grand seigneur of bio-art and ‘Lebenskünstler’ par excellence Joe Davis will hold a public lecture on Friday, 30th September at 19h at the Iwasaki Lab of the Waseda University in Tokyo. Here are more details in Japanese:
The lecture will be in English with translation into Japanese. That means that it will probably longer than expected. This is a free, public event, but maybe it’s a good idea to come early to get a seat. Here’s more information from the Iwasaki Lab site in Japanese.
Or, as Google Translate has it: Bio-art special lectures father, descended to Tamami!
Date: September 29 (Thu), 16:30 to 18:00
Location: Tama Art University, Hachioji, Department of Information Design Building 25-205
