Mark Nystrom's Winds Process

Illustration // Monday, July 01, 2013
Mark Nystrom is an artist, designer, and interpreter of natural processes with a unique visual language created through the use of data, science, and nature as his raw materials. His intricate work delves into the often inaccessible world of minute data points, translating complex streams of analytic information into expressive and colorful drawings, installations, projections, and screen-based projects. In his "Winds Process" series, Nystrom uses various means, such as suspending a pen outfitted with sails over paper, to record the wind conditions of a single day and capture the subtle shifts of air currents in a tangible and engaging image.

Illustration // Monday, July 01, 2013
Constance Jacobson is a Boston-based artist and printmaker whose work draws from the practice of medical imaging to explore existential fascinations and fears, focusing on the aesthetic and poetic implications of the scientific process. This fabricated scientific imagery recalls our modern preoccupation with the afflicted or deteriorating brain, as well as our agonizing fear of dementia and its relatively mysterious movement through the human mind. Jacobson's work has been collected by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the New York Public Library, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Josh Keyes' Compelling Canvases

Illustration // Monday, July 01, 2013
Based in Portland, Oregon, artist Josh Keyes' style borrows heavily from the intricate diagrams and detailed illustrations often seen in science textbooks, showing cross sections of improbable habitats populated by species from very disparate environments. His paintings convey a fantastic sense of movement frozen in time, like the posed dramas preserved in the static dioramas of a natural history museum. Over the years, Keyes' vision has evolved into a signature blend of eco-surrealism and dystopian themes, a collection of scenes culled from a none too distant future of ecological disintegration and chaos caused by human waste and indifference to the natural world.
