From simple disregarded magazines, Artist Yunwoo Choi creates his impressive works, gluing them together to make forms inspired by the dimensions we cannot see. His pieces take the form of cyclonic black holes, corkscrewing ribbons and even flat pointillist-like portraits using the printed shades of his recycled paper medium.
With each he ponders important questions about our perceptions of reality:
“Are people,” he asks, “really living in the same plane or dimension even though they feel differently about the same situation?”
Not one to simply present the question, he reads books like Brian Greene’s “The Elegant Universe” and “The Fabric of the Cosmos” which explores the idea that there are 14 dimensions which have theoretically been proven. With so many dimensions at play, Choi explores the idea of invisible and intangible matter physically existing in the overlapping hidden spaces of dimensions we cannot perceive.
“I am also interested in invisible and intangible matter itself. Books by the philosopher Ken Wilber, along with Taoist and Buddhist texts have inspired my work. For me, the answer is to express my unseeable and untouchable deep internal interests and spirit.”
Acknowledging the dualistic nature of his “endless” conceptualizing in the realms of the spiritual and the secular, he states: “my mind which was originally seamless oneness is divided into numerous fragments.” It sounds a lot like the mind that could create such thoughtful and interestingly inspired works.
