Musical Weather Data Sculptures

Musical Buoy in Search Towards a New Shore (Dedicated to Melvin Maddocks)
Wood, data, reed | 2009

TED Global Fellow Nathalie Meibach's sculptures are a little complicated. On the surface they look like pumped-up versions of those wooden bead mazes for children. But Miebach's work begins by translating weather data from cities into musical scores, which she then uses to build vibrant, whimsical sculptures. She enlists musicians for collaboration in bringing the musical scores to life, which accompany the sculptures on display. You can listen to and download the track on Meibach's site, where you'll also find a nice gallery of her work.
