Imagine walking into a silent room where a woman is mending. Now imagine that she's sitting underneath 1,500 pairs of sharp Chinese scissors that are suspended from the ceiling, precariously pointed downwards. This was the idea behind The Mending Project by Beili Liu.
Chinese artist Xia Xiao Wan has pushed beyond the boundaries of the visual arts by turning flat artwork into three dimensional form. The holographic effect is achieved by using multiple layers of clear glass. Each sheet of glass is decorated separately, then put together on floor racks. With a 360 degree viewing angle, every viewpoint offers a unique and personal experience otherwise unavailable with 2D art.
