Lee’s studio practice investigates the morphological nature of language as words traverse a circuit of relationships through glass, design, and the body. She thinks about language as a somatic experience, leveraging light- and shadow-play to activate the confluence of objecthood and semiotic units in my work. Her latest body of work explores the inscription of cultural identity through literal mistranslations, slippery interpretations, crossed wires of communication, and other unintentional consequences of bilingualism.

Lee holds an MFA in Glass from the Rhode Island School of Design and received the inaugural Irwin Borowsky Prize in Glass Art in 2013 and the Edna Wiechers Arts in Wisconsin Award in 2014. She is currently an Assistant Professor and Head of Glass in the Art Department at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
