Joe Davis: “Understanding Exohexahedra”
“This talk will cover some of the motivations surrounding my own work in several fields and some of the practical problems that I have encountered along the way. The talk will also touch on the lives and works of others. Through these examples I will make my best effort to focus on what I think are the implications for a whole new mentality in the study and practice of art and science.”
