Changing Waters: An Installation by Nathalie Miebach


Photo: Changing Waters (detail), Nathalie Miebach, 2011Nathalie Miebach is known for her basket weaving and structured representations of scientific data. Changing Waters features wall and suspended works based on the weather and marine environmental data collected from the Gulf of Maine. Combining basket weaving techniques and information-graphics, Miebach creates works on the margins of craft, landscape, and representational art.
According to the artist, “Central to my work is the desire to explore the role visual aesthetics play in the translation and understanding of science information. By utilizing artistic processes and everyday materials, I am questioning and expanding boundaries through which science data has been traditionally visually translated (ex: graphs, diagrams), while at the same time provoking expectations of what kind of visual vocabulary is considered to be in the domain of ‘science’ or ‘art’.”

Miebach holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Political Science from Oberlin College, OH, and both a Master of Art Education and Master of Fine Arts from Massachusetts College of Art.
