Biography
Nathalie Miebach explores the intersection of art and science by translating scientific data related to meteorology, ecology and oceanography into woven sculptures and musical scores/ performances. Her main method of data translation is that of basket weaving, which functions as a simple, tactile grid through which to interpret data into 3D space. Central to this work is her desire to explore the role visual and musical aesthetics play in the translation and understanding of complex scientific systems, such as weather. Miebach is the recipient of numerous awards and residencies, including a Pollock-Krasner Award, Virginia A. Groot Foundation Award, TED Global Fellowship, 2 Massachusetts Cultural Council Fellowships and the Fine Arts Work Center. She did her undergraduate studies in Chinese and Political Science at Oberlin College. She received an MFA in Sculpture and an MS in Art Education from Massachusetts College of Art. Her work has shown nationally and internationally, and has been reviewed by publications spanning fine arts, design, and technology. She lives in Boston.

Biography
Chris Welsby, landscape artist and pioneer of the moving-image gallery installation in Britain, whose subtle meditations are exhibited in museums and galleries around the world. Welsby has been making and exhibiting work since 1969. He completed undergraduate diplomas at Central School of Art and is a graduate of the early Experimental Media Department at Slade School of Fine Art, London. Welsby developed as an artist during a period when Structural filmmaking was at its height in Britain. He shared the Structuralist concern that the processes of filmmaking should be transparent and this desire for transparency is central to an understanding of the work. 'Systems' are central to his thinking, in the form of the unseen structures that connect natural phenomena with human mental processes and technologies.  He received a BA from Chelsea School of Art. Since 1989 he has been Professor of Fine Art (retired) at Simon Fraser University - School for the Contemporary Arts. Welsby began making experimental landscape films and installations in the early 70s and although he has used a range of mediums he has consistently explored the problematic relationship between humans, human technology and the natural world. His films have screened consistently in Cinematheques and art galleries around the world since 1972. A pioneer of moving images in the gallery, his expanded cinema works and installations continue to delight gallery visitors, break new conceptual ground and attract critical attention.  In 1993, Welsby abandoned film and began using digital media. Since 2004 he has been working collaboratively with Vancouver based new media artist and software programmer Brady Marks. His film and film/video installations have been exhibited internationally, at galleries such as Tate and Hayward, London, the Musée du Louvre, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, Museum of Modern Art, New York, Carnegie Institute in Pittsburgh, AGO, Toronto, Serpentine Gallery/ London, Gwangju Biennale/South Korea. His work has been screened around the world since 1973, at such places as Rhode Island Museum of Art, AGO, Institute of Modern Art/Australia, Hammer Museum/LA, Tate, Museum D’Art Moderne/Paris, The Art Institute/Chicago, His work is held in the collections of Tate, Musée National D’art Moderne Centre Georges Pompidou/Paris, Arnolfini/Bristol, Museum of the Moving Image/London.
