Carrie Bodle

Sound, scientific data and sewing converged in Carrie Bodle's Waveforms, a multimedia exhibition at the Harborview Eye Institute in fall 2010.

Inspired by University of Washington oceanographic research in Puget Sound, Bodle used sound to translate the scientific data into a continuous embroidered wave form.

Bodle's goal: to make science audible, visible and tangible through art. The multisensory aspects of the exhibit—which featured audio—allowed visionimpaired patients at the Harborview clinic to experience the artwork.

"The central method in my work is to use underlining systems of data translating them into evocative experiences," explains Bodle, who received a CityArtist Projects award to help realize her exhibition.
