“New York artist Austin Lee inhabits a surprisingly tangible digital dream world. In his work, paintings and sculptures present an experience from another world. For Lee, there are very few boundaries, either between the real and imaginary world or the digital and physical world, ”Case Studyo said in a statement. “For his collaboration with Case Studyo, the artist offers his interpretation of the most basic of seating objects: the stump. Lee’s “Stump” is an indefinable object, both in form and in function; playful and simple but deliberate and complex. A real topic of conversation, publishing is an example of a new way of designing objects that can be used with virtual reality.
