Clarkson University's Alex M. Lee Exhibits Work in Korea

Clarkson University Assistant Professor of Digital Arts & Sciences Alex M. Lee held a solo exhibition this month at Gallery DOS in Seoul, Korea.

Alex LeeIn the exhibition, Lee expands the scope of his artistic expression by combining art and science in the field of media art. He uses virtual reality to share experiences with visitors.

The work was composed of three projects: "Everything From Here to Infinity," "Soliloquy for Sagan," and "Fractals Particles Photons Microwaves."

This work contains a deeper knowledge of science, cosmology, physics, and mathematics than previous works, which allows viewers to broaden their perspectives on science and art.

Alex Lee exhibit"My work is an investigation on the possibilities of digital imagery in an increasingly technical and automated world," Lee said. "Originally born out of pictures theory, my practice focuses on the creative employ of artifice and immateriality within the digital image. I consider the digital image in relationship to the phrase 'technical image' coined by philosopher Vilem Flusser, in which photography and mechanical reproduction heralded new forms of perceptual experience and knowledge.

"We are living in a digital age of the 'elite technical image,' where increasingly complex technical software and hardware apparatuses are being utilized for the acquisition and dissemination of knowledge. The products of these technical apparatuses often finds their way into my work expressively, culling from sources from science, science fiction, mathematics, physics, and modernity."
