Davis Was Born April 11, 1933 in Washington, D.C. Douglas Davis is an artist who specializes in making new media turn inside out—that is, do what it's not supposed to do (he makes video touch you, prints speak, the InterNet lie down in your lap like a puppy). He is also known as a pioneer in "long-distance art," most of all live satellite video and now streaming video theater on the Web. He gorges on advanced and traditional technology, including interactive websites, intercontinental performances linking "real" and "virtual" sources, high-density volumetric imagery, video-casting/installations, printmaking, drawing, and photography, as well as post-minimal "objects" and installations.. He has also used ancient, peeling paper, film, radio, and vintage stereopticons. In 1977, at the opening of documenta 6, alongside Nam June Paik and Joseph Beuys, Douglas Davis took part in one of the first international satellite telecasts with his live performance.
