Boston artist Nathalie Miebach‘s creates these colorful sculptures that look like children’s toys gone awry, as if she included far too many twists and turns for a child to possibly follow. Miebach translates this quantified data into physical forms that mimic the twirling motions of the invisible
Miebach translates this quantified data into physical forms that mimic the twirling motions of the invisible weather they aim to imitate.
The method that I use is basket weaving because basket weaving is a very simple three-dimensional grid that I can use to translate data with, Everything in the sculpture, whether it is a colorful bead, a string, whether it’s a dowel or reed, represents a different data point. Nothing is put on there for purely aesthetic reasons.
Not only do her pieces serve as aesthetic objects, but readable sources of concrete data.
It is important for me that these pieces are actually very accurate because I want them to live in the science world as much as in the sculpture or craft world, I still want you to be able to read the weather off of these sculptures.
