Jimin Lee will speak about the conceptual transition in her work from images focused on mundane personal objects that have contact with parts of her body to a newer focus on images that use objects such as cars, elevators or airplanes that transport her entire body to a new location. She will also describe her recent research activities and her experiences at residencies in Spain, Australia, Finland and India.
