Nathalie Miebach

Nathalie Miebach explores the intersection of art and science by translating scientific data related to meteorology, ecology and oceanography into woven sculptures and musical scores and installations. Her main method of data translation is that of basket weaving, which functions as a simple, tactile grid through which to interpret data into 3D space. Central to this work is her desire to explore the role visual and musical aesthetics play in the translation and understanding of complex scientific systems, such as weather. She is the recipient of numerous awards and residencies, including a Pollock-Krasner Award, TED Global Fellowship, Massachusetts Cultural Council Fellowship and a recent nomination for the World Technology Award, Brother Thomas Award and the Women to Watch Smithsonian Award. She did her undergraduate studies in Chinese and Political Science at Oberlin College. She received an MFA in sculpture and an MSAE in Art Education from Massachusetts College of Art. Her work has been shown in the US and abroad and has been reviewed by publications spanning fine arts, design, and technology. She lives in Boston.
