Plaza Mayor, Madrid

Janet Enchelman’s sculpture hangs over the Plaza Mayor as complex net structure of engineered coloured fibres that are inter-connected and fastened together. The art installation gains fluidity by moving with the breeze and then a canvas for projected light at night.


In the last four hundred years, people have gathered at Plaza Mayor to witness bull-fights and Spanish Inquisition burnings,

Today we gather together with art that explores our concept of time, to discuss ideas. This is a hopeful trajectory for humanity.
