Thanks, Irene. The Renwick is the Smithsonian's museum for decorative arts and contemporary crafts. This second floor ballroom usually has something immersive that people can stretch out on the floor to enjoy. This one is a reprise, here are the museum's notes : Our close look at the natural world continues in the Rubenstein Grand Salon where Janet Echelman’s 1.8 Renwick—a visitor favorite during the museum’s blockbuster exhibition, WONDER, in 2015—is back on view. Named for the microseconds the earth shifted during the earthquake and tsunami that shook Japan in 2011 and literally shortened the day, Echelman’s site-specific knotted and netted installation once again turns the Grand Salon into a theater for the imagination and an exploration of natural phenomena. Come discover or revisit this work which invites reflection, looking up at the aerial sculpture and down at the landscape carpet created by the artist.
oh...

thank you so much; I feel knowing some of the backstory adds so much to our enjoyment of photographs shown here.
I thought it might be the Northern Lights - see how wrong my interpretation was!
