I love so much about these string installations by American artist, Janet Echelman. She really explores the possibilities of string, which is such a simple, almost one dimensional material.  She transforms this material into something that is so immensely sculptural and dynamic, it almost seems like it is its own life form. What I also really enjoy about her work, is the way it engages with its surroundings and transforms spaces and places with it's bold presence.

She tells me that we can expect an installation in Sydney in September this year. Well, it has been a while since I've been to Sydney...I think it's time to book some flights!

Check out more of her work here.
