Net Sculptures

I’m completely mesmerized by Janet Echelman‘s massive moving net sculptures. Her colorful projects draw inspiration from ancient craft and modern technology, using machine and hand woven UV-resistant fibers and collaborating with local engineers and architects. Each sculpture physically responds to environmental forces like wind, water, and sunlight which makes them so magical and magnificent. Check out the rest of her work and their locations here.
