Ian Lee is fascinated by distraction. Since becoming a mother, solitude has fled her life, leaving in its place a bombardment of interruption. Rather than walling her work off, Lee began cataloguing these distractions, cutting out squares that correspond with a moment of interruption, and arranging them within a set time frame. The paper is so delicate that a single moment of inattention can spell disaster. This has taught Lee to be humble, and to approach the process of making as art itself.
Ian Lee lives and works in Seoul, Korea.
