    Shalya Marsh and Lars Westby

    CODED: Shalya Marsh and Lars Westby

    Presented at the Howard County Center for the Arts, Gallery II, this exhibition highlights two sculptors, Shalya Marsh and Lars Westby, both working in clay with distinct similarities and differences. The exhibit explores themes of coding and ciphers. Marsh's piece, Morse Plurality uses two types of encoding a straight substitution based on the textures applied to each form, and a Morse code created by the dots and dashes of the forms themselves. Cipher 037 represents the alphabet from A-Z plus the punctuation marks period and comma. Challenge yourself to decode Morse Plurality using the Cipher 037 and Morse code.
