소리 내 읽어주세요 (Please Read Aloud)
Typewrittten text on paper
295 x 210mm

The text is about a voice actor who provided dubbing for a Hollywood actor. The artist wanted to ask the voice actor to be in her video, but the person passed away before she figured out how to phrase her request. Lee thinks that the person's voice is now documented as a voice of the Hollywood actor. The text begins with "Please read aloud." The artist used a Korean typewriter—a tool and a physical "language-system"—which her body was not familiar with—to create the piece. her body awkwardly typed each consonant and vowel onto the paper. The text is not clean. There are tangled words, mistakes, erasures that cannot cover the erasures themselves. Please read them aloud.
