Incredible! Sculptures by Janet Echelman

Here is the most brilliant and inspiring thing I’ve seen today: the artist Janet Echelman giving a TED talk about her large-scale fabric sculptures.  Here is Echelman’s portfolio. Aren’t they amazing? I love the way they have color and fluidity. There’s something very yogic about the way the sculptures are able to shift with the breeze and their abstract sensibility. They’re so open–to the environment and interpretation. Echelman’s story is a great lesson in creativity, too. She was a painter on a Fulbright in India; however, her paint supplies never arrived and she had to fulfill her grant requirements in some other way. In a coastal Indian town, she found herself inspired by fishing nets.
