“1.26” by Janey Echelman is obviously stunning, but how it came to be is equally as interesting. The 230 foot long sculpture made of Spectra® fibre (15 times stronger than steel by weight), is light enough to be suspended from the Denver Art Museum and over traffic. Inspired by the effect of the 2010 Chile earthquake on the length of the earth’s day, and by a 3D simulation of the ensuing tsunami’s form.
