Edie Siyi Xu: My previous work has been mostly focused on soft sculpture and wearable sculptures. Recently I started to explore the ideas of time through a video format. The video piece addresses the concept of repetitiveness, wherein a given environment a repetitive act happens throughout time even when we try to stop it. Things change along with time, even though it remains what it is, just like the ice cream. Just like our everyday life, we wake up to eat and sleep. Our daily routine remains the same as our life continues to move on with the push of time.

Edie Siyi Xu-Untitled-Video-6’-2020:

I tied a wire to my sculpture and walked it from my dorm to the bean. I was interested in how the public would respond to my sculpture, and their reactions are filmed in the video. I wanted to show that art does not have to be only viewed in a gallery or museum. I was interested in the ‘first impression’ that people had towards my work in an everyday environment.
