Ha Na Lee received a 2014 Grants for Artist Project in the media art category. The grant is to purchase media equipment for a multimedia installation entitled Two Women, Lee’s dissertation project. Two Women is a poetic narrative based on the invisible crisis of her grandmother who committed suicide. Though the motivation of her suicide is unknown, the work searches for possible reasons to understand her death. Ultimately, the project addresses the social issue of the extraordinarily high suicide rate in South Korea over the past decade.
