Lee's unconventional artistic approach is a social commentary on the consumerism of modern civilization, and questions the intrinsic values of the millennial era. Using everyday materials as a gesture of upcycling, he utilizes Styrofoam as his base material best represents the vanity of contemporary culture, as it is fragile, flammable, and mostly air while still being non-biodegradable and difficult to dispose of.

"In the recent years, I have thought about the resemblance between plants and people and the way plants swarm out of the earth always seems to me like people going to work diligently.

“In my work I strive for exactness, but perhaps it is paradoxical that in striving for perfection – and never reaching it – it is there that you actually find it...It is the imperfect that becomes unique, the flaws that become interesting, the randomness that leads to new ideas.”
