This 745-foot aerial sculpture stretched along the Vancouver waterfront at TED2014. The net-like design, created by artist Janet Echelman, was made from a fiber called Spectra, which is 15 times stronger than steel.
Passersby could use their cell phones to manipulate the lights, a trick set up by Google’s Aaron Koblin. “The lighting on the sculpture is actually a giant website,” he says. “It’s one huge Google Chrome window spread across five HD projectors."
