Giant Installation Suspend 700 Feet Between a 30-story Skyscraper.
Studio Echelman is currently working on designs for a monumental aerial sculpture to premiere at the TED Conference’s 30th anniversary in Vancouver, March 2014. The sculpture will suspend 700 feet between a 30-story skyscraper and the Vancouver Convention Center– challenging the artist to work on her most ambitious scale yet.
“Janet Echelman’s vision for the sculpture is absolutely spectacular,” commended TED Curator Chris Anderson. “We can’t think of a better celebration of TED’s 30th anniversary.” TED announced its invitation to bring back 100 of “the best TED speakers of all time” for TED2014, themed “The Next Chapter,” and Echelman will deliver one of these mainstage talks in conjunction with her sculpture premiere.
