Brown Bag Research Talk: Chang, Elezovic and Geil

November 15th, 2014 by Kenya Hudson

Join us for an exploration of the intersectionality of sound, image and the act of drawing!  When does sound become noise or music?  How does image mediate our experience of sound?  How can we convey the act of drawing as a meditation and not simply a process? 

Prof. Chung-Fan Chang, Dr. Ivan Elezovic and Prof. Mark Geil present their multimedia project, "Drawing Noise," on Tuesday, November 18, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. in the classroom of JSU INNOVATE on the first floor of the H.T. Sampson Library.  The JSU Center for University Scholars hosts this brown bag research talk and provides light refreshments.  Feel free to bring your lunch and bring a friend!
