    The gym is the only space in the hospital where active and dynamic movements can be glimpsed. Lee’s Ground disperses individual pieces of symbolism, which ironically mean nothing more than what they appear to be. The installation re-interprets and draws its inspiration from figurative painting. Its composition and symbolic visual language is recounted through the orange ‘dots’ to which the artist consciously and subconsciously relates. These ‘dots’ constantly give rise to new meanings as they connect with altering sites and situations. The reconstructed imageries and ideas of mythology within the visual field of the painting reveal the subjectivity of an individual stemming from personal experiences. Lee’s works also invite the audiences to experience and formulate his/her meanings by situating themselves in relation to these abstract symbols of dots and balls.
