Glass artist, Liza Lou.
Recorded at unknown location and time, presumably 2013 or 2014.
Artist Liza Lou discusses her work. In 2013, The Corning Museum of Glass acquired her ambitious large-scale sculpture, Continuous Mile, which is composed of 4.5 million, glossy, black glass beads woven onto a mile-long cotton rope that is coiled and stacked. Standing about 3 feet high and stretching nearly 5 feet in diameter, the sculpture took Lou two years to complete with a team of beadworkers from several townships in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Conceived as a work about work, Continuous Mile is exquisitely made and manifests the social concerns that run throughout the artist's work.
Mode of access: internet.
Lou (b. 1969) creates meticulously beaded works that reference recurring themes, such as labor, confinement, wonder, and human endurance.
