The artistic practice of Lawrence Lek is deeply rooted in architecture. Experience of a boosted modernization in Asia, where he grew up in the 1980s, profoundly influenced his understanding of architecture as the expression of a deeper social psychology. After working on site-specific installations for some years, he turned to creating works only with the help of digital technology, rethinking at the same time the meaning of what is the essence of site-specificity in the world of increasing importance of digital technologies.
