Janet Echelman makes heavy things look lighter, thus the city looks smaller and more solid. She paints the sky with colors and movement. She builds enormous sculptures that fly, ethereal shapes that float above your head; playing with the wind, fluctuating with the light, they are changing all the time. She is building us a shelter, she weaves a cover for that space. You feel protected and covered, and yet you feel free and light; sheltered with a mesh of colors and movement. The transformation in the place is spectacular, but at the same time I wonder: Has this beautiful form been here forever?
Janet Echelman inspires us for the workshops we are preparing at Endaze British International School. We are planning a new project, we would like to create shapes to protect us from the sun, painting at the same time the sky that we like so much. We will keep you posted!
