About Nathalie Miebach:
Working at the intersection of art and science, Nathalie Miebach is a Boston-based sculptor who translates weather data into woven sculptures.  Using basket weaving as her method of translation, her work explores the role visual aesthetics play in the translation and understanding of science information. By utilizing artistic processes and everyday materials, she is questioning and expanding boundaries of visual articulation traditionally associated with science, while at the same time provoking expectations of what kind of visual vocabulary is considered to be in the domain of ‘science’ or ‘art’.   Nathalie Miebach holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Oberlin College, OH, a Master of Art Education and a Master of Fine Arts from Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, MA. She is currently a Residency Artist at Amherst College, MA.  www.nathaliemiebach.com
