American artist Janet Echelman recently unveiled the latest sculpture to her Earth Time Series that began in 2010, with a captivating suspended thread installation currently on display at Madrid’s Plaza Mayor in Spain.

Titled “1.78 Madrid,” the work is comprised of highly durable and engineered fibers in vibrant tones, which have been braided and knotted together to form a lightweight net that flows with the movement of the wind. During nighttime, colored lights are projected onto the piece to create more vibrancy, while also exuding a more aesthetically pleasing dynamic overall.

Good morning from Madrid!
