Scientific data interpreted as baskets

Just so happens that artist Nathalie Miebach was taking astronomy classes at Harvard and learning to weave baskets at the same time when it occurred to her that she could basically weave baskets to interpret data in a three-dimensional space. Since then, she’s translated all sorts of scientific data from astronomy, ecology and meteorology — think barometric pressure, weather patterns and temperature variations — into peculiar-looking basket sculptures.
