Now and Then.









In the past few years I have learned the importance of love. Love starts with you. It starts with loving your surroundings, your life and the people in it. Accepting and loving their quirks, faults, idiosyncrasies, and all that makes you grit your teeth and want to lose your temper. Love is pictures in your head when you might want to make a timeline of how they make you really feel. Love is loving yourself, accepting who you are with all your quirks and faults and idiosyncrasies and embracing those pictures of what your life represents. Nothing is perfect but place the bits of your life together. Doesn't it seem perfectly suited for you and who you are and what it says about you and your journey and your destination?

Janet Echelman. Sky Painter

I have been MIA from the blogging world for a while. I took a job and found myself as a single mom saddled with responsibilities of the real world of drop offs and pick ups and caught in rush hours and dance recitals and food runs. No more quiet afternoons as I remember them with the sunlight that sifted through my bedroom window caressing mine and my daughter's face as she coos quietly in the background as she did when she was an infant and I rapidly sputter out hurriedly through the pecking at my keyboard all that inspired me for the week or day or even month. Here I am, older, wiser and more harried and yet I have an inspiration to share. Her name is Janet Echelman and this is her work.

Important to note, Janet Echelman uses giant net installations that she stitches by hand fusing old with new engineering to create architectural feats that are 230 foot aerial sculptures like "1.26" that she had installed over the Amstel River in Amsterdam. The form and content of the artwork draws inspiration from the interconnectedness of Earth’s systems. The artist used laboratory data from NASA and NOAA on the effects of the 2010 Chile earthquake, and the resulting 1.26-microsecond shortening of the earth's day. The sculpture’s three-dimensional form is inspired by the Echelman’s mapping of tsunami wave heights across an entire ocean.

There's also "Skies Painted with Unnumbered Sparks" in Vancouver Canada and " She Changes" in Porto Portugal.
