Crafted from materials including metal, silicone, resin, chains, crystal beads, and organic matter, Lee Buls cyborgs, monsters, and glittering architectural structures may seem futuristic but are influenced by specters of the historical avant-garde, like 18th-century Italian artist Piranesis labyrinths, the Futurist dreams of Italian architect Antonio SantElia, and Weimar architect Bruno Tauts fantastic crystalline cities suspended in mid-air. Though Lee was academically trained in sculpture, her early works were often interactive, inviting viewers to create private performances in sleek karaoke pods or to pump air into monumental balloons mimicking manga and anime heroines. Lees diverse body of recent workincluding installations of sculptures, drawings, and maquettescontinues to cross genres and disciplines, exploring themes of beauty, corruption, and decay.
