Janet Echelman is an American artist who creates fluid moving sculptures out of nets. Echelman was first inspired to use nets while on a Fulbright lectureship in India. There she learned netting techniques from local fisherman in Mahaballipuram. Her first public sculpture series, Bellbottoms, was installed in Mahaballipuram. Most of her sculptures since have been both machine and hand-woven from weather and UV-resistant fibers. In the last five years, using those fibers, she has built several permanent installations in Portugal, Denver, San Francisco, Phoenix, and British Columbia.

A lot of those remind me of upside down jellyfish! :)
