Taking Imagination Seriously

When something happens and you have to think out of the box … Wait a minute, which box are we talking about? There is no box in your life, everything around will be new, all the information is fresh because a problem gives you the opportunity to create something completely new and that’s what happened to Janet Echelman when she found her paints went missing. She had to come up with new art material for her sculptures.

Now she makes billowing, flowing, building-sized amazing sculptures.

She created a massive, mesmerizing crowd-sourced sculpture for TED’s 30th anniversary.

Those are some of the massive and amazing sculptures that she does.
