Janet Echelman is an artist who defies categorization. Her work intersects across the
boundaries of Sculpture, Architecture, Urban Design and Planning, Material Science,
Structural and Aeronautical Engineering, and Computer Science. She creates
experiential sculpture at the scale of buildings that transform with wind and light. The art
shifts from being an object to look at, to a living environment you can get lost in.
Recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship, Harvard Loeb Fellowship, Aspen Institute
Henry Crown Fellowship, and Fulbright Lectureship, Echelman was named an
Architectural Digest Innovator for “changing the very essence of urban spaces". Her TED
talk “Taking Imagination Seriously" has been translated into 34 languages with more
than one million views.
In 1987, she studied at Hong Kong University on a Rotary International Fellowship after
graduating from Harvard College. She lived in a Balinese village for 5 years, then
completed separate graduate programs in Painting and in Psychology. This year she
received an honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts from Tufts University.
Hong Kong was the city of her first solo museum exhibition, at the Fung Ping Shan
Museum in 1990
