Chances are, if you live in a big city, that you will have seen the art of Janet Echelman somewhere at some point. The artist creates incredible dense hanging sculptures out of fibres that are then lit up with different coloured lights, and has made installations in cities all over the world. Credited with turning public spaces into gigantic works of art, this short video by Great Big Story gives us a look into the processes that go into making these enormous installations, from the raw scientific data that goes into the actual designs of the sculpture to the massive amounts of manpower necessary to hang these giant twine structures in such large spaces.
