Ye (Sherry) Liu is a current PhD candidate in the School of Art, RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia. Sherry's artistic practice investigates how affective engagement operates for rebuilding connections among nature, people and the community, and how creative practice illuminates the value of multi-cultural communities. Her works focus on affect, socially engagement, community reshaping, and exploring the relational aesthetics and connective aesthetics to challenge the public to reconsider our community and environment. Recently, Sherry collaborated with the art director of the Huaniao Island International Public Art Festival and initiated the socially engaged art project on the Island. She explores how multicultural communities live together and adjust to the new community environment. Her texts have appeared in the Public Art Journal (China) and Journal of Artistic Research.
