NATHALIE MIEBACH

In Summer 2015, I was an Artist in Residence at the Mountain Lake Biological Field Station in the west Appalachian mountains of Virginia.
I focused my time on developing various mark making systems to capture the sounds I heard all around me.
The result is this very new body in which collages are used as sound maps to track the direction and quality of sounds found in different environments.
