Lee Montgomery experiments with limits and does so with a great appreciation for noisy and aggressive psychedelic phenomena, altered perception, and aesthetic forms of civil disobedience.
With the collective project, Neighborhood Public Radio, he has experimented with unlicensed radio broadcasting in the 2008 Whitney Biennial, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, and numerous locations in the United States and various countries throughout Europe.
As an assistant professor of Electronic Art at the University of New Mexico, Lee teaches "The Art of Transmission" and the "International Collaborative Art Program", where students travel to partner institutions (like University of California in San Diego and Santa Cruz) to develop projects with colleagues and international visiting artists.
Lee's recent video work has featured processed psychedelic manipulations of the Transformers movies directed by Michael Bay as a meditation on copyright and appropriation, and television broadcasts from kites and weather baloons to explore alternate methods of generating and experiencing aerial phenomena.
At Signal Culture,Lee will be continuing his processing experiments with Transformers movies as well as exploring various photographic and video experiments with a GoPro camera and a 3D Robotics Iris quadcopter that was used for the creation of his current "Air Force" show at the Center for Contemporary Art in Santa Fe, NM.
