Floating Sculpture By Janet Echelman

Temporary art installation hanged above Oxford Circus and handmade from 77 miles of twine and half a million knots, the lightweight artwork changes its lights according to the local weather. The colors at night can be changed by the public via smartphone and Wifi.

This installation was titled ‘1.8’ and the artwork was inspired by the tsunami that hit Japan in 2011, and which shortened the day’s length by 1,8 seconds.

A description about the project states:

The artwork invites you to pause amid the bustle and commotion, offering a chance to gaze skyward and contemplate a physical manifestation of the interconnectedness surrounding us.
