    Nathalie Miebach explores the intersection of art and science by translating scientific data from meteorology, ecology and oceanography into woven sculptures and as performance art. Basket weaving, her main method of data translation, functions as a simple, tactile grid to interpret data into 3-D space. The role visual aesthetics play in the translation and understanding of complex scientific systems is central to her work.  Miebach is the recipient of numerous awards and residencies, including a Pollock Krasner Award, a TED Global Fellowship, and a 2012 nomination for the World Technology Award. Her work has been shown in the US, Europe and Australia and has been reviewed by publications spanning fine arts, craft, design, science and technology. She lives and works in Boston.  The Weather’s Turning Weird… is the 2014-15 Tarble Humanities Exhibition and part of the EIU Center for the Humanities’ investigation of the concept “Authenticity.” See online at eiu.edu/tarble.
