Visual Sculptor Nathalie Miebach

I recently saw this 2011 Ted Talk by Nathalie Miebach and figured it would intrigue folks here.

“Nathalie Miebach’s work focuses on the intersection of art and science and the visual articulation of scientific observations. Her woven sculptures interpret scientific data related to astronomy, ecology and meteorology in three-dimensional space. Her pieces simulatneously function as works of art, aural embodiments of data (musical compositions) and instruments that illustrate environmental change.

By utilizing artistic processes and everyday materials, Miebach questions and expands the boundaries of traditional science data visualization — and provokes expectations of what visual vocabulary is considered to be in the domain of science and art. Miebach [was] a TEDGlobal 2011 Fellow.”

    I reveiwed a similar project that was translating weather data into knitting patterns/wearable items. Project was here in Ireland and had a nice connect with wool, local heritage and community too
