Hyungkoo Lee

Posted by Fabio 6 May 2011

Homo Animatus by Hyungkoo Lee, was an extension of a series of earlier pieces where the artist physically sought to alter – to reduce to cartoon simplicity – his own anatomy. Using plastic forms, enlarging and reducing lenses, Lee created a variety of body costumes that altered both one’s appearance and one’s vision of the real world at the same time.
