Ascolta il TED di quest’artista, che è partita solamente dalla voglia di realizzare un’idea ed è arrivata a raggiungere risultati altissimi:

When I started, my biggest challenge was learning to hear my inner voice — finding a way to be quiet enough to notice and pay attention to my own ideas. I began writing and drawing with both my dominant and non-dominant hands. Somehow the non-dominant hand gave me access to ideas that would not have come to light, overpowered by my more conscious, skilled hand.

Once I began to hear and pay attention to my fledgling ideas, the biggest hurdle was to learn how to respect them. That was hard, because the real way to respect an idea is to invest the attention and work needed to develop it.

When developing an idea, I remind myself not to start with compromise. I envision the ideal manifestation of the idea, as if I had no limits in resources, materials, or permission. I’ve learned there’s a cost to eliminating options too soon, as some might be more viable than they initially appear.”

Janet Echelman builds living, breathing sculpture environments that respond to the forces of nature — wind, water and light — and become inviting focal points for civic life. Exploring the potential of unlikely materials, from fishing net to atomized water particles, Echelman combines ancient craft with cutting-edge technology to create her permanent sculpture at the scale of buildings. Experiential in nature, the result is sculpture that shifts from being an object you look at, to something you can get lost in.
