Jae Rhim Lee - FEMA Trailer Project

Jae Rhim Lee is a Visiting Lecturer and alumna of the MIT Visual Arts Program. She also directs the FEMA Trailer Project. Her artistic practice includes N=1=0=Infinity, a post-apocalyptic, urban eco-burial system. The FEMA Trailer Project transforms one of the 94,000 surplus trailers into an alternative vehicle, to be donated to a community or non-profit organization. The FEMA Trailer has come to symbolize many of the environmental, social, economic, and administrative challenges associated with temporary disaster housing. The FEMA Trailer Project catalyzes positive change in these areas, and applies environmental justice and permaculture principles to the conceptualization and re-design of the trailer.
