Janet Echelman: Taking imagination seriously

Thanks to my friend Ann Medlin Hall for pointing out this really interesting talk on video I hope you'll enjoy too, from TED Talks: "Janet Echelman found her true voice as an artist when her paints went missing -- which forced her to look to an unorthodox new art material. Now she makes billowing, flowing, building-sized sculpture with a surprisingly geeky edge. A transporting 10 minutes of pure creativity." View this talk here: http://www.ted.com/talks/janet_echelman.html 

an example of her art:

Tsunami 1.26, 2011 - Sydney, Australia
