    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.

    During the afternoon on Friday the 24th of April, 2015, the Office of Study Abroad will be hosting the third annual HOLI: FESTIVAL OF COLORS from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Library Quad of Eastern Illinois University. Admission is FREE, so come out and celebrate the spring season with us in an explosion of color and friendship.

    The celebration originated as a Hindu religious holiday, mainly in India and Nepal, as a day to rid oneself of past errors, end conflicts, forgive and forget. It also marked the beginning of spring, and the tradition of spreading colors everywhere is a way to celebrate and encourage the coming growth of spring’s flowers and plants. The festival has since spread throughout other Asian countries and on to countries like the United States. Here at Eastern, the Festival of Colors gives students an opportunity to get together with their friends and work off the stress of upcoming exams and the end of the semester.

    People of all ages and professions are encouraged to come and make a mess. As per tradition, colorful powder will be distributed to be spread on friends, family, and strangers. Participants will be sure to leave covered in all sorts of color with a smile on their face. Returning participants will remember the festival well and are sure to encourage new people to remember to wear white T-shirts or at least something they do not mind getting messy.

    Friday, April 24, from 2-4 p.m. in the Library Quad we will celebrate Holi on EIU's campus. If you've seen people decked out in color before on campus- this is the reason why

    So here's the deal...

    *Holi is celebrated in India and Nepal, and is most often referred to as the "Festival of Colors." It is a celebration of spring and friendship

    * Holi starts with water and lots of it. Gulal is a food-based dye in powder form- that's it is so colorful

    *Make sure to wear old clothes- or something you won't mind getting dirty. A white or light colored shirt will show the dye best.

    *Follow us on Twitter @EIUStudyAbroad and check for updates on our Facebook page.
