Lawrence Lek

Lawrence Lek (b. 1982 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany) lives and works in London, England.

Lek explores the effect of simulated presence through software, hardware, installation and performance. His practice deals with the indeterminate side of technology: themes of drift, chance, mimicry, vertigo, dystopia and how they impact our ongoing search for freedom and agency with virtual realms.

He uses simulation as a site-specific medium, using it to collage together alternate versions of real places. Constructed using digital fabrication and video game software, his work places the viewer in the role of a wandering observer, encountering existential landscapes through a first-person perspective.
