Lee states, "In this installation, I am exploring the formal aspects of the screen—how it can separate and also allow some permeability—as a metaphor for my dual cultural and language experiences. It features photographs I have taken from a trip to South Korea in the summer of 2017 and photographs I have taken in Illinois the past two years.... As the Armstrong gallery has two long facing walls, one wall features images and song lyrics that related to the concept of Jeong; the other wall features Haan. These two Korean concepts are seemingly opposites, but are they also complementary? Do they give deeper meaning to the other in their differences? They have no exact equivalent in the American culture, and the aim of this project is to help gain a deeper and more nuanced understanding of the two terms and their dynamics."
