"Order X Chaos" by design artists Bradley Coulter and Vinicius Lima will be on display Feb. 16-March 13, in the Kristin Wigley-Fleming Fine Arts Gallery in the Center for the Arts on the Luther College campus.
The exhibit is open to the public with no charge for admission.
Coulter and Lima take several design principles and techniques used to create order in content and apply them toward a contrary idea in an effort to understand if these tools can bring chaos to the orderly visual communications we encounter every day. To investigate this, diagrams, computer programs, classic grids from design history, color and topography are manipulated and combined in experimental ways to create new images and content open to interpretation.
Coulter received Master of Arts and Master of Fine Arts degrees in design from the University of Iowa. He is currently an assistant professor of graphic design and typography at Minnesota State University, Mankato.
Lima, a native Brazilian from Rio de Janeiro, received a bachelor's degree in architecture and urban design from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and earned a Master of Arts and Master of Fine Arts degrees in design from the University of Iowa. He is an assistant professor of graphic design and foundations at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, Michegan.
