Christine Lee

Lee works on functional design, sculptural objects and installations to explore the latent potential of mundane, surplus, and other disregarded materials. She experiments with multiple configurations and patterns to transform these overlooked materials beyond novelty and to reveal their unbounded value. Lee is also collaborating with engineer John F. Hunt of the USDA Forest Service Forest Products Laboratory on naturally bonded non-toxic interior composite panels. Their research has been presented at the BMRA Decon Conference at Yale, the Furniture Society Conference at MECA, and at the Global Institute of Sustainability at ASU. Lee received her BS in art at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and her MFA in the furniture design and woodworking program at San Diego State University.
