The Houston Center For Contemporary Craft is currently featuring a series of intricate sculptures inspired by the data gathered from extreme weather events, including Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. The installations are rich with colorful textures and were created using a variety of materials by Boston-based artist Nathalie Miebach.
The pieces incorporate everything from barometric pressure readings to actual tweets by Houstonians who were experiencing Harvey in real-time. Curator Kathryn Hall believes “The Water Line” is an exhibition that all Gulf Coast residents can relate to. “I think this exhibition is very personal for our city,” Hall said. “[Harvey] is something that many of us experienced in a multitude of ways. Within the different sculptures, you’re really able to explore how the storm affected different areas and how different people responded to it.”
“Nathalie Miebach: The Water Line” will remain on view through January 5.
