Artist Jee Young Lee dreams on a grand scale, and she constructs her elaborate mixed-media creations in the same way, by turning her entire studio – including herself – into surreal and often disturbing works of art.
"Birthday" by Jee Young Lee
Lee's visions use every nook and cranny of the small room that serves as her studio space in Seoul, and once the transformation is complete, she photographs the results (in real space, no Photoshop or other digital tricks), then starts all over again on a new dreamscape.

Some of her most ambitious projects have been collected in a gallery at Elite Daily, and their themes run from tranquil fields of flowers to whimsical, toy-filled wonderlands... but it's her spookier creations, like the giant caterpillars of “Birthday,” the Hitchcockian “Black Birds” or the thorny hell of “Food Chain” that capture the true feeling of nightmares... so naturally, we had to share them with you.
