Janet Echelman: Light as Air
Public art is a massive undertaking, your work is on display for all to ridicule, the paperwork has to be out of control, and what hell is liability insurance? Boston based Janet Echelman not only had to deal with all of that but also a massive engineering feat for her newest work Light as Air. Installed this past Sunday over Boston's Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, Light as Air weighs in 10,000 pounds but when installed creates 50,000 pounds of sheer force. We've been admiring Echelman's work at SFO for the last year and a half, so we were excited to see her bring a piece to her hometown here in Boston.
