Mar 24

From March 15 to March 22, a spectacular sight greeted residents of downtown Vancouver: a monumental net sculpture floating in the sky, spanning 745 feet between buildings. Created for the TED Conference’s 30th anniversary, the installation called Unnumbered Sparks is the result of a collaboration between artists Janet Echelman and Aaron Koblin.

Woven from braided fibers, the ethereal net ripples and sways in the sky. At nighttime, the sculpture comes alive with illumination that is choreographed by visitors who gather beneath the net. By making small movements on their mobile devices, visitors can paint spectacular beams of light that streak across the sculpture’s surface in real time.
