The 2012 London Olympics Aquatic Center is now open to the public! They took the bulky seating risers off the sides, replaced them with fog-proof glazing and voila. Now regular flabby Londoners can take a dip where THIS happened.

janet echelman's floating net sculptures

Artist Janet Echelman stumbled upon the idea of using nets in her art exhibits when her paint supplies did not arrive when she was based in India, planning an art exhibition. While she was walking through the village Echelman was struck by the quality and variety of nets used by the local fisherman and decided to try and use those in her artwork.
Echelman is currently embarking on her largest piece ever, a 700-foot-long sculpture that will be suspended over Vancouver next month in conjunction with the 30th anniversary of the TED Conference. In collaboration with the Burrard Arts Foundation, she’s currently seeking funding via Kickstarter to make it happen. (via)
