About Janet


Janet Echelman first set out to be an artist after graduating college. Her work reshapes urban airspace with monumental, fluidly moving sculpture that responds to environmental forces including wind, water, and sunlight.

In 1987 she moved to Hong Kong in 1987 to study Chinese calligraphy and brush-painting. Later she moved to Bali, Indonesia, where she collaborated with artisans to combine traditional textile methods with contemporary painting.

Today Echelman has constructed net sculpture environments in metropolitan cities around the world. She sees public art as a team sport and collaborates with a range of professionals including aeronautical and mechanical engineers, architects, lighting designers, landscape architects, and fabricators.

I live right next to the first one in Phoenix Arizona and I must say the picture of it is better than the actual thing. Its supposed to evoke the images of the dark huge monsoon clouds that we get out here but I think understandable its not very impressive. I like the second one way better, but maybe thats because I dont see it everyday

The talk made the works that much more interesting. A very accomplished artist. She gave the talk on TEDD, which is British and features a lot of Continentals who might come off as American but have something interesting to say, anyway.
