Timothy Hyunsoo Lee has created a collection of paper sculptures meant to represent the artist's inner psychological state. Lee wants to use his own personally history, involving psychological, emotional and social issues and display it through art.

Lee's academic background in science is extremely pronounced in his art. Lee applies scientific values of observation, research, experimentation and analysis in much of his work.

Many of Lee's paper sculptures are mini self-portraits of a very specific time and place in his life. A good amount of Lee's work display faces and eyes, which are then folded in a unique manner. Lee attempts to tackle some of his issues like OCD, and depict them in a very personal way. Many pieces in Lee's collection have an eerie tone, but beauty and interest is found in Lee's profound honesty.
