As an artist, Lee examines the morphological nature of language. She is interested in how language inherently changes — over time, across cultures, and in physical form. Lee reifies her bilingual experience as a second generation Chinese-American in a fluid material that similarly embodies a state of flux. Lee states, “I write in glass, which is to say that I write in light, and I write in shadow.”
