Janet Echelman

Janet Cardiff

Janet Cardiff creates enormous glowing space sculptures that seem to float in mid-air. Her way that are working and developing their installations and sculptures in my opinion is unique.

She realize the immense installations which are not shown in galleries where they can be seen only by a certain type of people interested in arts.  I like that she sees public art as a team and collaborates with a range of professionals including aeronautical and mechanical engineers, architects, lighting designers, landscape architects,  fabricators and others. I like that the artsit create the art for all people and expose them in certain places in different cities.

The sculptures are made by hand-splicing rope and knotting twine into an interconnected mesh of more than a half-million nodes. When any one of its elements moves, every other element is affected. Janet Echelman reshapes urban airspace with monumental, fluidly moving sculpture that responds to ever-changing wind, water, and sunlight and weather.

I choose Janet Echelman because she uses uses natural elements like the wind to create homogeneous movements.

I like to use in my projects movement of any kind, but I prefere the homogeneous movements made natural, without interfering in some ways the subject.

She chose as the main subject of her installations to be the fish net. My projects are as common topic the human body and the natural movement of the feminin parts of the body.

I’m interested in Janet Echelman’s work because the results of her projects are sculptures that shifts from being an object you look at, to something you can get lost in.
