Lee Jung's lit text installations are as sad as they are beautiful. Making love-laden statements in moody and foggy weather, this artist clearly knows the way to a viewer's heart.

Seemingly created out of despair, the installations include statements like "How could you do this to me?" Striking and saddening all at once, these pieces seem to float in the air, lending a magical feel to the installations. It seems that the different quotes were shot at different times of the year, as some are placed in snow and others in fall leaves. The neon LED lights add a remarkably bright contrast between the lettering and the background, and really offset the juxtaposition, which make the pieces so special.

Heart-wrenching and lovely to look at, Lee Jung's installations strike a sensitive chord with audiences. Bloggers and art enthusiasts alike will be eagerly anticipating the next debut from this amazing artist.
