“It’s Getting Wetter, Hotter and Drier,” Nathalie Miebach

February 21 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Nathalie Miebach

Artist Nathalie Miebach will give a lecture titled “It’s Getting Wetter, Hotter and Drier: Exploring Weather Changes Through Data, Music and Sculpture” to the LSU College of Art & Design on February 21, 2024 at 5 p.m. in 103 Julian T. White Hall Auditorium.

Nathalie Miebach explores the science behind extreme weather events due to climate change and the complicated human responses that unfold as our world is becoming hotter, drier, and wetter. Her base material is scientific data related to meteorology, ecology and oceanography, which she translates into woven sculptures and musical scores and installations. Central to this work is the role visual aesthetics play in the translation and understanding of scientific phenomena such as climate change and the complicated human responses it ensues.

She is the recipient of numerous awards and residencies, including a Pollock-Krasner Award, TED Global Fellowship, Virginia A. Groot Foundation Grant, and two Massachusetts Cultural Council Fellowships. Her work has been shown in the US, Canada, Europe and Australia and has been reviewed by publications spanning fine arts, design, and technology. She lives in Boston.
