Artist of the Day…Ji Lee

"The Bubble Project"

I love painters and graphic designers, but today I thought I’d feature an installation artist because I haven’t featured one in awhile. So meet the work of Ji Lee, a designer that also does branding, advertising, and installation work. He hails from Seoul, South Korea, but currently resides in NYC where his street art projects are really cool to catch.

"Word as Image"

"WTC Logo Restoration Project"

Lee has ongoing series of work that he archives. They include The Bubble Project in which he places blank word bubbles on posters around NYC and then comes back and photographs what people have written in them. Parallel World is another installation piece in which Lee decorates ceilings with objects that ususally mirror the room Parallel World is in. Another cool work Lee has going on is the WTC Logo Resoration Project in which he and civillians around NYC take photos of logos that incorporate the former World Trade Centers.
