It is hard not to look at Lee Bul and think of the future. Full of mirrored surfaces and metallic finishes, the South Korean artist focuses a lot of her energy dealing with what she believes is a "disappointment about modern life" as well as "questions about the destiny of humanity." With this in mind, it is only natural that Lee Bul's work will be met with philosophical ruminations.

Meditative, abstract and in some cases organic, the sculptures and installations created by Lee Bul for her latest exhibit in New York City will be met with awe. Some of her sculptures are brand new while others were created a few years ago. She says, "I have interest in how humans can keep a positive vision of the future—these are conceptual ideas, but I want to create an experience."
