Chaeyoung Lee

Seoul, South Korea

Chaeyoung Lee is a designer and craft artist based in Seoul. She works on furniture and objects inspired by the idea of every life.

 

“Our lives are finite and limited, but they have all the positive possibilities. However, no one can stand alone. I want to look at all the things that support us. We get to know when we see it, and when we get to know it, we get the chance.

So I will look into things that I can't see and find value and beauty in them.”

// Time of Action Version no.20-1

Work begins with a small idea of the form of life. What makes us valuable is not the possession of something but every moment that appears in the process.

'Time of Action' series uses ebonizing and carving techniques that include time and experience to faithfully archive small parts of the present. It was intended to weigh the momentary process with ebonizing, which slowly reveals dark black through several coats, and carving, which forms a new texture with repetitive body movements. The layer of time completes a direct tactile experience beyond reason.

Chaeyoung hopes that we will stay more faithful to our lives by focusing on the process before the outcome, the time that's becoming, and "here and now."
