Since 1995, Joshua Davis, an American designer, technologist, author and artist in new media, has made a career as an image maker using programming, he writes his own code, to produce interactions with users and to generate visual compositions according to rule-based, randomized processes.

Using this convergence of Software and Hardware, Mr. Davis currently resides at Sub Rosa as Media Arts director creating installation work that occupies physical space.

Davis had a role in designing the visualization of IBM’s Watson, the intelligent computer program capable of answering questions, for the quiz show Jeopardy.

His work has been inducted into the Smithsonian's Cooper Hewitt Design Museum, National Design Triennial 2006 “Design Life Now”, and has work in the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art.

He has exhibited his works and/or lectured at the Tate Modern (London), the Design Museum (London), the Institute of Contemporary Arts (London), Barbican Centre (London), Ars Electronica Center (Austria), Centre Georges Pompidou (France), Contemporary Arts Center (Cincinnati), J. Paul Getty Museum (Los Angeles), PS.1 MoMA (New York), Guggenheim Museum (Bilbao), among others.

Since 2000, he has lectured globally about his work, inspirations and motivations at museums, galleries, institutions, art festivals, etc… and has spoken at the TED (2005) and 99U (2013) conferences about his career in algorithmic image making and open source. wikipedia
