Each of the 100 puzzle segments in The Missing Piece are part of a publication that holds individual authors’ experiences of joy. When aligned, the picture becomes complete – inviting viewers to retrospectively explore what “being happy” means to them. Phoebe Lee is a Korean-American creative director whose work playfully communicates intangible and, at times, emotional subject matter through unexpected media. The experimental nature of her practice is designed to transform audiences into actors, listeners, makers, players, storytellers and readers. “There is never a dull moment when you are dancing with curiosity,” Lee explains.
