Prof. Flounder Lee joined AUD in Fall 2014. He grew up on a farm in Alabama, started school for Aerospace Engineering but then moved into studio art and photography. His work has been shown extensively both nationally and internationally including Barcelona Art Contemporani 11; Documentation: Photography as Witness at the University of Maine; Bewegterwind (Moved Wind) in Hesse Germany, and Re/Move at Foto, kino i video savez Vojvodine in Novi Sad, Serbia.  
He has curated numerous exhibitions such as Double Vision: A Dual Channel Video Festival, Mapable, and TPS Reports: Performance Documents. He founded then directed SpaceCamp MicroGallery in Indianapolis, USA for three years.
The intersections between public and private, art and life, history and the present, among others, inform his artwork, which is usually video, sound, photo, installation, and performance based. His personal work involves lens-based mapping and often investigates post-colonialism, borders, and/or environmental topics. His curatorial work often overlaps these topics but explores a much wider range of media than his personal work.​
Prof. Lee was the only artist selected from the UAE exhibiting at the Liquid Cities – International Video Art Limousine Festival in New York in October 2015 at the XY Atelier Contemporary Art Gallery.
In celebration of UAE’s Innovation Week 2015, he created an installation titled Drinkable on campus. The installation dealt with environmental issues in an engaging and provoking way. Prof. Lee had previously created two versions in the UAE, one for Sikka Art Fair in Al Fahidi and the other for the launch of the Global Manufacturing and Industrialization Summit.
