Sukjoon Lee is a Chicago-based kinetic sculpture artist.

He was born in Seoul, Korea and had studied sculpture in BFA and MFA at Seoul National University. Before he moved to Chicago, He share his artistic skills with students at Seoul Art High school for five years during his personal art practice and shows. His kinetic sculpture interacts with audience to create an open theater where the boundaries are blurred between the stage and the audience. Their relation has a constant cycle of change, transition and making a new perspective, which can disturb the audience to have a specific cognitive perception about the space where they belong. He received his second MFA with Art & Technology Studies from School of the Art institute of Chicago for the aesthetics of elaborate kinetic machining and electronics, and keeps working in Chicago.
