The Mending Project by Beili Liu

This installation, the Mending Project, consists of Chinese scissors suspended from the ceiling, pointing downwards, while artist Beili Liu sits below sewing cloth. The hovering, massive cloud of scissors alludes to distant fear, looming violence, and worrisome uncertainty, described by the artist herself. During this live installation/performance, Beili asks visitors to cut white sheets and offer the section to her to sew together. As seen in the pictures and video, Beili calmly sews while scissors hang dangerously above her during her performance. She balances fear of the hanging scissors with the soft, calming, aura of sewing.

Meanwhile, she tries to find a caprice of clear senses. She might blog about it all at DesignCube or simply rest her eyes within the phosphenes.
