Hye Rim Lee was born in Seoul, Korea. She received her BFA from the University of Auckland, New Zealand. She is known for exploring issues of femininity, plastic surgery, projection of desire, and technological manipulation through her computer-generated female cyborg TOKI. Her ongoing TOKI/Cyborg Project challenges what she calls the "phallic motivations" of dominant cyber culture, computer gaming, and animamix. Lee's work has been exhibited extensively in Asia and Europe. She currently lives and works in New York.
