Full article by Meghan Hendley-Lopez


Born in Chengdu, China, Huidi Xiang has expanded her love of design and visual art over the course of her current collegiate career at Rice University. A double major in both studio art and architecture, Xiang brings together elements of sculpture, photography, and video to test conflicting ideas along with displaying the outcomes of visual experiments. Private emotion, public domain, personal interpretations, and subjective feelings all flow together into a broader context transmitting straight to the viewer. During her time at Project Row Houses this summer, Xiang has taken these artistic concepts and expanded them into the thoughts of community.
