Artist Statement

William Lee is a New York-based artist. His works integrate mechanics developed by activating material conditions and sabotaging prefabricated structures in order to articulate a technological art, which is capable of rendering intelligible the convergence of identity politics and the history of technology. He is influenced by techniques and discourses in game-design, comic books, animation, biosemiotics, abstraction, cybernetics, and computer art.
