“Over the five years it took me to create the Made In series, I had the opportunity to meet a lot of people and hear their stories. These encounters inspired me to start my new installation piece Proper time, which speaks to the stories I heard from people around the world. First, I conducted interviews, both online and offline, with people from around the globe. [...] I wanted to use capital, which functions as both a barometer and motor in the contemporary world, 
to question the value of life in a capitalist system.” Lee Wan
