Film: Heaven+Earth+Joe Davis
Part of SPACE Gallery's SCOPE Visual Arts Film Series

Almost thirty years ago, a peg-legged artist and motorcycle mechanic from Mississippi walked into MIT!s Center for Advanced Visual Studies and demanded a meeting with the Director. They had not returned his calls. Forty-five minutes later, after trashing the receptionist!s desk and holding off the Cambridge police, Joe Davis walked out of Director Otto Piene's office with an academic appointment at MIT. Over the years his status there has provided him with resources and collaborators for the creation and planning of much of his work - work that includes sending vaginal contractions into space to communicate with aliens; fishing for paramecia; encoding Greek poetry into the DNA of white-eyed flies; building an airplane powered by frog's legs; and developing a language to write the world beneath the world.

In person: Joe Davis and filmmakers Peter Saskowsky and Amy Grumbling
