Janet Echelman builds living, breathing sculpture environments that respond to the forces of nature — wind, water and light.
Exploring the potential of unlikely materials, from fishing net to atomized water particles, Echelman combines ancient craft with cutting-edge technology to create her permanent sculpture the size of buildings. Experiential in nature, the result is sculpture that shifts from being an object you look at, to something you can get lost in.
Janet Echelman was also a speaker at TED 2011's "Threads of Discovery" session and has been commissioned to create public art sculptures in North America and Europe. More can be found here:
