Meet the Maker - Windy Chien

Windy Chien

Windy Chien (she/her) recognizes that knots are a universal language spoken across oceans, centuries, genders and occupations. She makes rope sculptures and site specific installations that utilize patterns and repetition of knots to inspire awe and understanding. In a world of division and strife, Windy believes that anything that we realize humanity has in common, is a good thing. Knots do indeed tie us together.

Windy Chien is best known for her 2016 work, The Year of Knots, in which she learned a new knot type, every day for a year. Her practice melds art with craft, aesthetic with function. While the output is often beautiful, this quality is intended to draw the viewer in and provoke awareness of the concepts behind the visual harmony: a deeper clarity of looking. Following long careers at Apple and as the owner of independent San Francisco music shop Aquarius Records, she launched her studio in 2015. She rescues greyhounds.
