What is real? Where am I living? What do I perceive is the real? Artist Yun-Woo Choi asks questions. He is wondering if invisible things – like his emotions, supernatural phenomena, dreams, God – are real and if they have some space of their own. Thoughts like these are the starting point for his work. In recent theoretical physics, there are eleven dimensions which have theoretically proven. If so, there could be numerous other dimensions which overlap or hide in space. With this idea of overlapping dimensions, Choi has begun to think that invisible and intangible things could physically exist in those hidden spaces. Based on his complex considerations Choi creates amazingly detailed, motion-filled sculptures out of old newspapers and magazines. Books by the philosopher Ken Wilber, along with Taoist and Buddhist texts inspired his work.
