    Dr. Jinjoon Lee FRSA is a new media artist, designer and creative director exploring the liminoid experience of utopian space ideologies with new technologies. After graduating from the Business School of Seoul National University, he went on to pursue a master degree of Moving Image(Jane and Louise Wilson) and Design Interaction (Anthony Dunne) at the Royal College of Art in London, and the doctorate of philosophy in the Ruskin School of Fine Art, University of Oxford. His doctoral thesis was titled Empty Garden: A Liminoid Journey to Nowhere in Somewhere (2020), which manifested as a 10-meter-long scroll that mixes East Asian garden aesthetics with existentialism, poetry and autoethnographic research. Since giving his debut solo exhibition at ARKO Art Centre of Arts Council Korea in 2008, Lee has exhibited at numerous venues worldwide. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA) and a full-fledged member of the Royal Society of Sculptors (MRSS). Dr.Lee is perhaps best known for the public media sculpture They permanently installed at Digital Media City, Seoul in 2010.
