Clarkson University President Tony Collins has announced that Alex M. Lee has been promoted to Associate Professor of Digital Arts & Clarkson University in the School of Arts & Sciences.
He is a digital artist who utilizes 3D animation, game engines, and the potential of simulation technology in order to visualize and abstract the notion of time, space, and light – culling from concepts within science, science fiction, physics, philosophy, and modernity.

Lee has exhibited internationally as well as within the United States. Selected exhibitions include Mio Photo, Osaka, Japan; Daegu Art Factory, Daegu, Korea; The Gene Siskel Film Center, Chicago, IL; Eyebeam: Center for Art & Technology, New York, NY: Gallery DOS, Seoul, Korea; Museum of Contemporary Art, Montreal, QC.
