Nathalie Miebach

by Karen Mahoney of City by the Sea Ceramics

Last week I went to the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton and had so much fun! I discovered one artist in particular I'm excited to have found and I'd like to share her with you.

Nathalie Miebach complies the data of tides, temperature, winds, moon phases and other specifics of various environments and creates sculptures made of "reed, wood, data". She had two pieces in one of the current exhibits at Fuller, The New Materiality: Digital Dialogues at the Boundaries of Contemporary Craft.

The piece above, Boston Tides, was created from data collected in 2005 at Boston Harbor. It transforms the information of the rising and setting of the sun and moon, tides, moon phases, and the solar path in relation to the horizon, and creates a large sculpture of data, with each weave representing one hour.

Nathalie's second piece in the show is Warm Winter. This sculpture compares local, regional, and historical data of air, water, and soil temperature, as well as wind speed and direction, tides, and moon phases. The piece is specific to the weather of December 2006 and January 2007.

The exhibit is there through February 6, 2011. After digging through their site a bit more I found that Nathalie will have a show at Fuller from January 15, 2011, through September 25, 2011 with a reception on February 25.
