Lee Mc Donald’s work tests and explores the reaction of mechanical processes upon objects and materials. Through the creation of a quasi-scientific set of on-going experiments, he pushes the creative ideas of sound and physics. These experiments are rooted in the principles and mechanisms of kinetic art, where viewing the work depends on motion for its effect. Some works require audience participation and are generally interactive, enabling the audience to consider and explore artistic and technical possibilities.
Lee is currently based in Plymouth, and is a graduate in BA Fine Art from University of the West of England, Bristol.
