A small room, located in Seoul, is the protagonist of surreal scenes. Jee Young Lee in her studio (3 to 6 meters), creates a world of flowers, caterpillars, clouds and more. The images seem to digital compositions, made ​​magic with photoshop, but the truth is that everything is real. The Korean artist changes her small space through imagination, using paints, hand-made items and special lighting effects, creating a fairy-tale landscapes and dreamscapes. Once the scene is completed, after weeks or even months, finally snaps her picture.

Una piccola stanza, situata a Séoul, è la protagonista di scene surreali.  Jee Young Lee nel suo studio (di 3 metri  su 6), crea un mondo di fiori, bruchi, nuvole e non solo. Le immagini sembrano composizioni digitali, magie realizzate con photoshop, ma la verità è che tutto è reale. L’artista coreana trasforma il suo piccolo spazio attraverso l’immaginazione; utilizza vernici, oggetti fatti a mano ed una illuminazione particolare  creando paesaggi fiabeschi ed onirici. Una volta terminata la scenografia, dopo settimane o addirittura mesi, finalmente scatta la sua fotografia. Essa rappresenta momenti personali della vita di Lee o del folklore popolare coreano; rappresenta l’emozione, che viene dal suo cuore, dalle sue memorie, dai suoi sogni.
