2 Way Electric Fan

Traditional fans only rotate 180 degrees, so they only blow cool air towards the front. However, the wind from this fan is exhausted in both directions and it allows cool air to be delivered 360 degrees around. Additionally, the fan is adjustable upwards and downwards, allowing cool air to be blown in any direction. For example, the fan can simultaneously blow wind to two people, one sitting on a sofa and the other on the floor.

Matrix Series uses a 16-piece mold. Lee made the mold, made the base jar by pouring in slip, and then cut it into pieces before the slip hardened. The pieces were then moved around according to a certain set of principles to carry out Lee’s experiment. Lee usually makes up a set of rules for the pieces to follow and experiments only in accordance with those rules. Once we understand the rules, we can have a bit of fun by trying to reverse-engineer his finished work.

One prototype was made from a plaster mold that can be mass-produced. The plaster mold that was produced to move up and down freely in the process of casting can be used as a cast to create different types of vessels. This producing method stands for a formative language in which a technique of plaster casting can not only be mass-produced, but also be used to create quality and unique products.

Plaster molds are the only medium Lee uses for his artistic expression. To Lee, molds are useful not just for their capacity to reproduce, but because they enable him to conduct precise experiment of shapes. In craft, there is always some discrepancy between an idea sketch and its actual instantiation, but molds reduce it as much as possible.

One example would be his Motion Series. One usually needs two pieces of mold to make a jar, but Lee uses 40 different pieces held together by rubber bands. He then moves individual pieces up and down to make the precise shape he wants. The “sketch” can then immediately convert slip into a jar. Because individual pieces of the mold can be moved around, the possibilities are endless as well as the number of identical products that can be produced.
