Our November/December 2009 issue features the work of Boston-based artist Janet Echelman. Echelman’s knotted and netted monumental outdoor sculptures can be seen floating overhead in urban landscapes around the world. In 2005 she was commissioned to create She Changes, a 160 feet tall sculpture that spans 300 feet and suspends over a three-lane highway roundabout on the Atlantic coastline in Porto, Portugal. This colossal fluid structure, inspired by the ancient fishing legacy of the region, is comprised of huge rings of galvanized steel and knotted Tenara Architectural Fiber. Echelman’s newest works are on display at the Civic Space Park in downtown Phoenix, Arizona (featured on our November/December cover), and the Richmond Olympic Oval in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada. Here we share a video on the making of She Changes complete with local reactions to the project.
