Seung Hyun Lee

In a specialised society, a single person will rarely undertake a project from beginning to end – except in the studio of a craftsperson.

Seung Hyun Lee has prepared for Collect Open 2017 by committing to frank talk about the working processes she encounters as a craftsperson: for example, a particular TIG welding skill she has developed, that connects the parts without silver soldering, making the process more efficient. Instead of grinding and polishing the connected parts, she treats the welded joints as design elements. The textures of her pieces, unlike those of factory products, arise from concerns about the hand-made process and the requirements of a one-person working system.
