I imagine a more humane world with the power of collaboration, specifically incorporating an artist’s voice into how company’s build their research & development teams. It is an important and radical way for generating a social, cultural point of view to the way they are producing and inventing. Artists not only add creativity and unique thinking; but more importantly to our culture, they add humanity, empathy, emotion and a global cultural voice. I know that this type of engagement creates positive cross pollination of knowledge exchange, helps to identify stale processes and the reinvention of routine, offers a new kind of technical expertise, helps staff employee’s absorb the risks of new ideas, fills gaps in knowledge and skills, adds a third party stimulus that asks relevant questions and offers different perspectives, and finally and most importantly, sparks the imagination and inspires wonder. (which on a larger scale reduces stress in the work place and makes for a more enjoyable and healthy work day experience). In order to further research this concept, I wanted to hear from leaders, pioneers of all disciplines. And that is how Project61 VMAG started. This video and now print magazine is an open source exchange between disciplines, communities, cultures, and citizens of all generations. It follows the “seven generations stewardship” concept of the Iroquois, where we live, work and pass on knowledge for the benefit of the seventh generation into the future. The magazine is an on-going project and its future expansion will incorporate more of a global perspective, this is only the beginning... Visit www.proj61.com/vmag to hear what leaders are saying.

P61 VMAG_A PROJECT61 EXPERIMENT.
I am asking leaders in their multi-disciplinary fields to lend their voice to a conversation about interdisciplinary collaborations.
WHAT IS THE GOAL OF P61 VMAG?
The primary goal of this magazine is to extend the global community of interdisciplinary collaborations in art, science, technology, engineering, design, education and maths, by creating a global voice for collective support. The aim is to present to the public an open source magazine that will be inspiring, informative, uplifting, and educational. Each video will feature either an artist, engineer, scientist, designer, technologist, astronomer, mathematician, or teacher speaking about the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration.
WHO WE ARE AT PROJECT61
WE ARE INTERDISCIPLINARY INNOVATION PROPELLANTS Drawing from Project61â€™s roster of artists with demonstrated experience in science, technology, and engineering, we integrate them into company R&D teams; (scientists, engineers and technologists) for a specified duration, to work with their team solving a particular problem. Through a considered pairing process that recognizes and accommodates technical skills, corporate culture, and artistic quality, Project61 creates opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration and radical innovation. WE MANAGE AND MONITOR. Our interdisciplinary pairings generate unique ideation and faster feedback, as well as engaging the creativity of an R&D team. By carefully managing and tracking progress, Project61 provides insights into the organic transfer of knowledge across specialties, developing core competencies and problem-solving skills. Our data and methodology accelerates the traditional R&D cycle, allowing for quick failures and even quicker solutions. We do this process in order to gather hard numbers to show the value of an artist at the table when things are being invented that wind up in our world.
LET THE DIALOGUE BEGIN...
JOE DAVIS Joe Davis is an artist, scientist, poet and research affiliate in the Department of Biology at MIT, and in the George Church Laboratory at Harvard Medical School and the Ashley Seifert Lab at University of Kentucky. While earning his Creative Arts degree (1973) from Mt Angel College in Oregon, he pioneered sculptural methods in laser carving at Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, NJ, University of Cincinnati Medical Center Laser Laboratory and other renowned laboratories. In 1976, Davis signed the first launch services agreement with NASA to fly a payload for the arts on Space Shuttle and in 1980, was the first non-scientist to address Goddard Spaceflight Center’s Engineering Colloquium. He joined MIT Center for Advanced Visual Studies in 1981 as a Research Fellow and was appointed Lecturer in Architecture shortly thereafter. In 1986, Davis created Microvenus, the first genetically engineered work of art and organized the most powerful and lengthily radar signals for extraterrestrial intelligence ever transmitted (Poetica Vaginal). In 1989 he created large permanent public sculpture, fountain and pedestrian lighting for Kendall Sq. in Cambridge, MA. In the same year Davis joined the laboratory of Alexander Rich at MIT where he is widely regarded to have founded new fields in art and biology. He attached fishing rods and miniscule fish hooks to his microscopes and developed other whimsical instruments that could resolve audio signatures from microorganisms. His projects involving “DNA programming languages” for inserting poetic texts and graphics into living organisms have been frequently cited in scientific literature. In his 2009 Rubisco Stars project, Davis transmitted the gene for the most abundant protein on Earth from Arecibo Radar in Puerto Rico to three sun-like stars. In 2010, he joined the laboratory of George Church at Harvard where he is designated “Artist Scientist.” In 2011, Davis worked with collaborators at Havard and the Japanese National Institute of Agrobiological Sciences to genetically modify silkworms to produce transgenic silks biomineralized with metallic gold. Davis was awarded a Prix Ars Electronica “Golden Nica” in 2012 for his Bacterial Radio project. In 2012-13, Davis organized an international consortium to sequence the genome of the ancestor of all domestic apples and later, to contain a highly compressed version of Wikipedia in that same genome. He contributed Astrobiological Horticulture to Ars Electronica in 2016, a multifaceted project to create organisms suited for survival in extraterrestrial environments. Davis is currently collaborating with colleagues at Harvard to insert 3D moving images and holographic data into living cells and in a project with Ashley Seifert Lab at University of Kentucky, Davis is investigating genetics of serendipity in mice using mouse-driven mechanical dice-throwing apparatus.

George is widely recognized for his innovative contributions to genomic science and his many pioneering contributions to chemistry and biomedicine. In 1984, he developed the first direct genomic sequencing method, which resulted in the first genome sequence (the human pathogen, H. pylori). He helped initiate the Human Genome Project in 1984 and the Personal Genome Project in 2005. George invented the broadly applied concepts of molecular multiplexing and tags, homologous recombination methods, and array DNA synthesizers. His many innovations have been the basis for a number of companies including Editas (Gene therapy); Gen9bio (Synthetic DNA); and Veritas Genetics (full human genome sequencing). George is Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and Professor of Health Sciences and Technology at Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He is Director of a U.S. Department of Energy Technology Center and a National Institutes of Health Center of Excellence in Genomic Science.

SAUL OSTROW Saul Ostrow is an independent critic, curator, and founder of CPI. In 1996 he terminated his studio practice, after having exhibited nationally, and internationally for over 20 years. In 2011, he founded Critical Practices Inc. to promote critical discourse. Its two core programs are: 21StPROJECTS, which sponsors viewings of artists works, and La Table Ronde (initiated in 2012,) which organizes roundtable discussions on critical and theoretical cultural issues. CPI was created to develop a dynamic network of cultural producers to support the emergence and development of new practices and ideas within the field of critical cultural production. It is our intent to serve a diverse community of producers by creating a dynamic network to facilitate in the shaping of critical discourse and practice. To achieve its goals, CPI operates “outside” the norms of the institutional and instrumental perspectives of the marketplace. Our programs are neither in opposition to, nor in compliance with, institutional models, instead, we employ the associations and priorities that define the community of critical producers and common goals- objectives to provide a platform for these diverse points of views. We believe that such forums are necessary to advance and sustain critical, theoretical, and artistic practices As a curator he has organized over 70 exhibition in the US and abroad.

KELVIN DOE Kelvin also known as DJ Focus, is a Sierra Leonean engineer. His creative instincts have been with him as a child and he would often dream of solutions to problems in his community. At the age of 10, he started scavenging for scrap electronics parts from dump sites after school for his inventions. Kelvin, together with his team, was a winner of Global Minimum’s Innovate Salone 2012 -- the inaugural high school innovation challenge in Sierra Leone. He had built a radio station for his community out of recycled materials, in addition to homemade batteries and a generator. Kelvin was selected to travel to the U.S. in 2012, where he was invited to speak at the “Meet the Young Makers” panel at the World Maker Faire 2012 in New York. Kelvin officially became the youngest ever “visiting practitioner” with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) International Development I nitiative. At MIT, he presented his inventions to students in two D-Lab classes, engaged with community members at MIT, and participated in hands-on research at the MIT Media Lab. He has also lectured to undergraduate engineering students at Harvard College. Kelvin’s experience captured on a YouTube video has been viewed over 4 million times and continues to inspire other young people in his country and around the world. “I believe that through innovation, we can build our nation Sierra Leone” Lean more about Kelvin: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kelvin_Doe https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOLOLrUBRBY https://www.tedxteen.com/speakers/kevin-doe
