American artist Janet Echelman creates public art installations with her colorful net sculptures drawing on both ancient craft and modern technology. While on a Fulbright lectureship in India she found inspiration from the surrounding fishing village famous for bronze sculptures. After realizing the economic downside of working with bronze, she began experimenting with fishing nets like those the fisherman around her used. Since then she has exhibited many of her huge net sculptures in cities around the world.
