The next time you fly over Columbus, the skyline will look a little different.
This suspended sculpture comes from Janet Echelman — an artist known for her massive public displays — and it’s literally hanging from buildings above Gay and High Streets. Once finished, project developers said it will be visible to airplane passengers when they arrive or depart in the city.
Construction started on this project during Memorial Day weekend with cranes and construction crews high above the streets at work. Janet noted the finished product features 512,000 knots to create the display, which requires 78.5 miles of twine to accomplish. That’s nearly six times the length of High Street, the longest street in the city at 13.5 miles.
