Shirley YIP's works deal with ecology and society. She likes to blend different media to create new visual and material effects, such as using plants and plastic. Although the materials and manufacturing processes of her works differ, all of them are connected to the same theme. Most of her inspiration comes from daily life. She intends to create works that are closely related to our lives. She believes that people should not give art a definition, because art is completely based on the viewer and beholders will have subjective views of her works due to their own experiences and emotions.

Do You Remember?

Glass, epoxy, words printed on plastic

2015

My work investigates the current value of books. I want to show the function and the existence of books from their birth to disappearance. So I choose a colorless medium to create this work. The melting book represents the value of books gradually decreasing and being forgotten as time goes by. All the words on the sticker are about time and life. It can highlight the theme. Also, there will be some small fragments in this work, which represent the traces of disappearing words in the book.
