Om­nipresent

New Zealand based Jae Hoon Lee is orig­i­nally from Seoul. His se­ries Om­nipresent was an artis­tic de­par­ture for him, and is the re­sult of a six-month res­i­dency in 2014 at the In­ter­na­tional Stu­dio and Cu­ra­to­rial Pro­gram in New York.

By lay­er­ing orig­i­nal pho­to­graphs taken across mul­ti­ple oc­ca­sions and lo­cales, Lee weaves frag­men­tary images into dense, dig­i­tal com­po­si­tions. Elu­sively hyper-real, Lee’s land­scapes build a tech­no­log­i­cally am­pli­fied ver­sion of the world around him. His in­ten­tion is to en­velop mul­ti­ple mo­ments within these mu­ral-scale images cre­at­ing an art­work that moves the viewer be­yond re­al­ity and into the realm of the sur­real.
