#DESIGN Incredible Set Design I A Small Space


Artist JeeYoung Lee will be presenting an amazing body of work titled “Stage Of Mind” which features intricate and visually stunning sets all created in the same 3.6m x 4.1m x 2.4m studio space.  Completely Photoshop free these sets took weeks and months to create. You won’t believe the scale of complexity JeeYoung Lee was able to achieve from her confined studio space in Seoul Korea. (Articles and Words from Fstoppers.com)

JeeYoung Lee drew her inspiration from personal life experiences as well as traditional Korean folklore. The artist embarks on a tedious and long journey to transform her small studio space into what seems like a vast environment that engulfs your senses and draws you in. There is a fantastic level of detail in each of her drastically different creations and a deeper sense of psychological reflection. Once each set is complete the artist creates self portraits within each world as part of a project entitled “Stage Of Mind” that will be featured on display in Opio, France at the OPIOM Gallery from Feb. 7th to Mar. 7th 2014.

As photographers many of us struggle with set design and we often look at the images of professionals in our industry as out of reach. We often think that these sets require massive teams, huge budgets and studios the size of football fields. JeeYoung Lee shows us that a little bit of creativity and ingenuity can have some stunning results and I think we can all draw a little bit of inspiration from her work.
