Jawdropping dreamscapes from tiny Seoul studio
“Dream bigger.” Steve Jobs’ advice to a Disney store executive when asked for development advice. That was easy for Steve to say when Number 1 Infinite Loop, Apple’s global headquarters, occupied a tidy 80,000 square metres. For so many, dreams are limited by space: ask anyone who lives in London, New York, Paris or other major global metropolises. These limitations did not stop Korean artist JeeYoung Lee exploiting her 3.6m x 2.1m x 2.4m studio space and creating her own “infinite loop”, depicting her dreams in micro-reality.
Showing that size should be no boundary to imagination, Lee, a recent graduate of Hongik University, Seoul, painstakingly built each dream sequence by hand before taking photographs, demolishing the installation, and starting again with another mind-boggling display. Lee assiduously constructs her props, suspensions and lighting over weeks and months to create these incredible scenes, shunning digital manipulation in favour of hard work and hand made creations.
You can see more of Lee’s work here; her first European exhibition “Stage of Mind”, opens in Opio, France in February next year.
