4) Events This Week at BRAHM


Coded Responses: A Talk with Artist Mark Nystrom

Thursday, Dec. 10 at 11 a.m. / $5 suggested donation

Artist and designer Mark Nystrom will show interpretations of wind, music and the news and discuss the processes that create them in this “Scholars with Scones” talk. Natural forces and data fuel Nystrom’s artistic practice. Hidden within them are patterns, forms and meaning ripe for extraction, analysis and interpretation. Like the translation of a text from one language to another, his work is a translation of information.

His work has been shown across the country and he is currently working as an associate professor of graphic design in the department of art at Appalachian State University.
