Net Sculptures | Janet Echelman
Net Sculptures by Janet Echelman: There is a fishing village in India called Mahabalipuram that is famous for sculpture. While visiting Mahabalipuram, American artist Janet Echelman got a brilliant idea. She observed the graceful movements of the locals nets as they caught fish and was struck with the notion of how nets could be used in the art. Echelman envisioned a structure as large as a building while remaining light and versatile; she could picture the net rippling in the wind and flowing with the movement of the environment around it.
