Translating the weather with sculptor Nathalie Miebach

Nathalie Miebach | the Pozen Center at MassArt, 621 Huntington Ave, Boston MA | January 7th @7PM

Growing up, Nathalie Miebach’s mother was interested in crafts, basket weaving mostly. Her father, meanwhile, lived for science, and actually worked on the Hubble Space Telescope. Her pedigree may go a long way to explaining why it is she does what she does. For nearly ten years the Boston-based artist has devoted herself to translating scientific data -- on occasion astronomy-related, but mostly weather-related -- into three dimensional sculpture by way of basket weaving. The results are otherworldly and challenging and for that reason, we urge you to check out the artist’s gallery show of sorts tonight at the Pozen Center at MassArt. On display will be those sculptures she’s done here in Boston while pursuing the AIR residency at the Berwick Research Institute. There will also be live music. In a spin-off of her weather sculpting work, Miebach has been translating local weather data into a musical score, which as she puts it, allows her to "dig deeper in exploring" the nuances of weather. Tonight, we hear she’ll be bringing along some musicians to do their own interpretations of said score. Intrigued? Duh
