Artist Beili Liu uses repetitive, hand-made processes to explore feminine strengths of resilience and persistence. For her new installation at Facebook Austin, "Skywell Austin", Beili created hundreds of "pebbles" out of printed silk organza dipped in resin. As in her other works, everyday materials are manipulated to create metaphorically rich narratives. The fluidity of this piece also refers to the powerful, yet invisible connections that Facebook offers its global communities. Beili Liu Studio, Video by June Zandona
