Come scorre il fiume..

Your “Oh, wow!” for the day: Janet Echelman’s glorious suspended sculptures float over cities across the globe. Janet’s sculptures are woven — much like fishing net — and their light, mesh material allows them to move fluidly in the sky, morphing and billowing in the wind like some sort of strange, beautiful, grandma-knitted Northern Lights.

These sculptures were birthed out of a trip to India during which Janet (then a painter) lost her paints in transit:

This fishing village was famous for sculpture,” she says in her talk from TED2011,"I went for a walk on the beach, watching the fishermen bundle their nets into mounds on the sand. I’d seen it every day, but this time I saw it differently…

Their soft surfaces revealed every ripple of wind in constantly changing patterns. I was mesmerized … I wanted to make them larger — to shift from being an object you look at to something you could get lost in.”

And her sculptures are certainly something to get lost in. Above, some examples of Janet’s work in Phoenix, Denver, and Amsterdam.

This is just one of the cool things popping up on our friends at TED’s new Instagram! Follow TED here.
