Nathalie Miebach, August 5, 2017

Weaving Science Data into Sound and Touch

Traditional tools, methods and technology are utilized as resources in contemporary design. Miebach will discuss how tradition and technology mix into a questioning and conceptual partnership within her sculptural work. And, her belief in the importance of combining the long-established, hand-build techniques with today’s computer-enhanced data collection and music generation.
