I was able to capture Beili Lui's at UICA's lecture with a few of their artists.

Check it out and then vote for her here. It took 6 months to create.

The ancient Chinese legend of the red thread tells that when children are born, invisible red threads connect them to the ones whom they are fated to be with. Over the years of their lives they come closer and eventually find each other, overcoming the distance between, and cultural and social divides.

Inspired by this legend, the installation makes use of thousands of hand spiraled coils of red thread suspended from the ceiling of the gallery. A disk may be connected to another, as a "couple", and each pair is made from a single thread. Every coil is pierced in the center by a sewing needle, which enables the suspension of the disks from the ceiling.

In response to the open space of the UICA-Fulton Gallery, a new version of the installation is created. Lure/Wave takes on a dynamic form of multiple organic waves, which rise and fall dramatically.
