A massive 700-foot long aerial sculpture is planned to span Vancouver’s Central Harbour for the 30th annual TED Conference held at the Vancouver Convention Centre. Janet Echelman, one of this year’s TED speakers, is bringing her most ambitious and largest art project to Vancouver. The aerial sculpture will be stretched and suspended from the roof of the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel and the Vancouver Convention Centre. The sculpture will also feature an interactive nighttime light display, developed by Autodesk, which will allow the public as well as TED attendees to engage with the sculpture in a unique participant-fueled visual experience. The official unveiling is tentatively scheduled for March 16, 2014, a day prior to the start of the TED Conference.

A Kickstarter campaign has been launched for the project to help Janet recoup some of the cash she has personally extended to fund the installation of the project. Janet and the BAF hope to raise $20,000 over the next 33 days.
