Jin Lee: Train View

Devening Projects + Editions

Reviewed by Tom Pekovitch

Aboard a regular commute from Chicago to Bloomington, equipped only with an iPhone and an assigned seat, Jin Lee offers up an analysis of mundanity and a look inside the American Midwest in her Train View series.

A blur of normalcy, passing by at 59 miles per hour, is suspended in time and dissected. From routine peering outside the window and focusing back inside the train car, beautiful geometric compositions hidden in landscapes and buildings of the rural Midwest materialize, along with intimate relationships with the other passengers.

Lee's collection of observations offer a captured reflection of our world which is constantly being disregarded, and replaced continuously with the visual stimuli surrounding us. Her works dare to upset the ever-developing composite of regularity and to slow down the digestion of our bearings. It is a commendable endeavor, if for nothing more than further appreciation.
