Are you hunkered down today trying to stay warm in the latest winter storm
? Take a few minutes to check out this awesome TED talk by Boston-based artist Nathalie Miebach.
Miebach utilizes weather data from massive storms and turns it into complex sculptures
that embody the forces of nature and time. She also translates the data into musical scores
that accompany her art. What a refreshing and original way to look way to look at weather. Today's snow and frigid temperatures seem much less brutal when you imagine them as a sculpture or as beautiful music.
I don't know how today's weather would plot out on Miebach's scale, but something tells me it would be very blue and it would have a lot of low notes.
Check it out. You may never look at weather the same way again.
