We introduced you to fine artist Silvy Liu in the second instalment of The Shady Series. Liu uses the tools of design to educate both adults and children alike. This makes for a variety of engaging, interactive work that is stimulating, thought-provoking and entertaining whilst maintaining an element of simplicity that is accessible to all.
One of the most interesting elements of Liu's work is that it inadvertently functions as a sociological measuring tool; from the moment the audience is faced with her work, their decisions paint a picture of human behaviour. That includes whether the choice to engage with the piece is made or not, in addition to how the work is interacted with.
