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. (Recorded at TEDGlobal 2011, July 2011, in Edinburgh, Scotland. Duration: 4:19.)
