(Pics) Ji Lee's Secret Ceiling Worlds
Ji Lee has created a series of tiny environments that he places inconspicuously on ceilings and in out of the way places.
Artist-designer Ji Lee has created a series of tiny environments that he places inconspicuously on ceilings and in high-up, out of the way places.
He calls the installations “Parallel Worlds”; they are currently located at the Google Offices and at Lee's home. Custom pieces are available.
Lee explains the project:
“People fill the floor of their homes with furniture and walls with paintings and pictures. So why are the ceilings left empty? Decorating ceilings was a celebrated art form in the past centuries that somehow got lost through the reductionism of modernism. People don’t look at the ceiling anymore. It’s a dead space. So I wanted to bring a small wink to this space. I also liked the idea that somehow there’s a parallel world which coexists with ours.”
