Lek uses computer generated imagery and advancing technologies, such as VR, gaming software and 3D animation, to develop digital environments and site-specific virtual worlds. By rendering real places within fictional scenarios, his environments reflect the impact of the virtual on the politics of creativity and on our perception of reality; investigating the changing nature of architectural experience through new technologies.
