Profile: Joshua Davis

Joshua Davis lives a chaotic life. An icon of web design, a technological pioneer and a digital artist, the 35- year-old's existence in New York revolves around his own commercial studio and teaching at the city's School of Visual Arts. And still, he finds the time to work on more personal projects, exhibit in museums, travel across the world to speak at conferences, and, last but not least, take on our cover commission this month. Chaos, indeed - but, crucially, it's controlled chaos.

Herein lies the key to understanding Joshua Davis. His work is based on the idea of design as chaos theory. Or, to be more precise, he is an artist who develops computer code that randomly creates patterns out of his own drawings. In short, he combines self-created technology with self-produced art.
