Justin also seeks to record everyday lifestyle into visual art based on his cultural and questioning appearances in its surroundings. He believes that art play an important part in helping people to grow and to see the important role play and awareness of themselves. Justin Lee’s current work reflects upon the act of mundane social behavior that can be seen as similar to an exchange of objects, with the expectation that when you give, you will receive the same. Lee believed that social behavior plays a large role in the development of a child’s social behavior, as parents or caregivers are typically those who decide the settings and situations that the child is exposed to.

Lee’s installation questioning social behavior setting on how one can commit to their social structure or can be determined by different situations and moments “Time perspective is one of the most powerful influences on all of human behavior. We’re trying to show how people become biased to being exclusively past-, present- or future-oriented.“”Human behavior is incredibly pliable, plastic.”― Philip Zimbardo
