Nathalie Miebach: Storms as Sculpture as Music (Video)

Via TED Talks:

Artist and TED Fellow Nathalie Miebach takes weather data from massive storms and turns it into complex sculptures that embody the forces of nature and time. These sculptures then become musical scores for a string quartet to play.

    Complex Data Visualization gives me hope for humanity. 
    The rest of her work is really awesome – would love to hear her lecture.
    Maybe some day we will isolate the gene sequences that allow for complex hypergraphic CEV’s and enhance the neural pathways between problem solving regions and higher order mathematic and spatial reasoning centers.  Then we could all just look a at problem, close our eyes and see spatial constructs such as these with full comprehension. 
    Check out this girls work.

    Didn’t Douglas Adams set out something very similar to this in the first Dirk Gently novel?

    I vaguely recall something about using one of the characters taking data derived from the arc described by the wings of flying birds then feeding it onto an old Mac and it being turned into music. And then the whole thing got monetised, and used to translate companies’ earnings figures into corporate anthems.
