Press Release on Pink Rabbit
Artesina, Piemont, Italy
2005 – 2025
“The things one finds wandering in a landscape: familiar things and utterly unknown, like a flower one has never seen before, or, as Columbus discovered, an inexplicable continent; and then, behind a hill, as if knitted by giant grandmothers, lies this vast rabbit, to make you feel as small as a daisy.
The toilet-paper-pink creature lies on its back: a rabbit-mountain like Gulliver in Lilliput. Happy you feel as you climb up along its ears, almost falling into its cavernous mouth, to the belly-summit and look out over the pink woolen landscape of the rabbitís body, a country dropped from the sky; ears and limbs sneaking into the distance; from its side flowing heart, liver and intestines.
Happily in love you step down the decaying corpse, through the wound, now small like a maggot, over woolen kidney and bowel. Happy you leave like the larva that gets its wings from an innocent carcass at the roadside. Such is the happiness which made this rabbit. i love the rabbit the rabbit loves me.”
After almost 5 years of knitting the rabbit found its final place in the italian alps (close to Cuneo). It waits there to be visited by you. You might even take your time or check back every now and then as the rabbit will wait for you 20 years from now on.

I’ll introduce several Ji Lee projects:
The Bubble Project
50,000 bubble stickers have been printed. They have been continually placed on top of ads on the streets of New York. They are left blank, inviting passersby to fill them in. I photograph and archive the results. This project instantly transforms the intrusive and dull corporate monologues into a public dialogue. Our public spaces are returned back to the public. Since its launch in 2002, the Bubble Project has become a global project. Bubblers all around the globe are bubbling their own towns.

3D Chess Board
The three-dimensional chess board adds an extra dimension of physicality to the game’s battle field.
Nine Circles Numbers
NCN are new numbers based on a visual logic of arithmetic progression. Unlike the Arabic numbers, which are a set of abstract symbols, the use of NCN does not rely on memorizing the shapes of each number, but rather on counting the elements contained in its nine-circles grid. NCN allow us to see that numbers can be mysterious, playful and beautiful.
Instead of showing the weight, this scale tells the person what to eat according to the weight.
All-In-One Card Stamp
Why buy many cards for different occasions if you can have an “One Card for All Occasions Stamp”? It saves time, money and headache.
