Po-Ting LEE

 

Suffering from severe congenital thalassemia, a nearly incurable disease, Po-Ting Lee treats his disease as the primary context of creation. When Lee was an undergraduate, he majored in sculpture, focused on kinetic installation, and created some sound works. In recent years, he tries to combine kinetic installations with sound works. He co-founded an interdisciplinary technology and art team XOR in 2011, since when he embarked on interdisciplinary experiments. At the end of 2012, he was an artist-in-residence at the V2_Institute for the Unstable Media, the Netherlands, where he witnessed the influence that the institute’s FabLab exerts on Dutch and European cultural economy and industry. This experience prompted Lee to establish a Taiwanese FabLab, and this mission was accomplished in August 2013.
