Video Profile: Changyeon Lee

Changyeon Lee is a New York-based award-winning artist and director of Studio God’s Gift. His practice specialises in kinetic sculpture through the use of mechanical components and natural objects.

The work examined in this Video Profile, A Thousand Breaths, represents human breathing in a form of which Lee refers to as “motion amidst rest.” From the artist’s personal experience of being in a coma, the installations in this series articulate perspectives on the transitory versus the perpetuity.
