Sending organisms to outer space

Talk by Joe Davis (US): Thu. 25 Aug 20:30

The projects of artist Joe Davis wander through the field of biology, astrology, genetics and the arts. As one of the first bio-artists Davis is currently investigating the possibilities for "Astrobiological Horticulture": the wish to construct a new organism that can survive on one of the most hostile spaces there is: the planet Mars. Join him coming Thursday for an artist talk and the screening of "Heaven + Earth + Joe Davis" (Peter Sasowsky).

On Friday Davis will also give the workshop " The Alchemy of Silk".
