PLENUM, A SPACE COMPLETELY FILLED WITH MATTER

Yunchul Kim is an electroacoustic music composer and artist based in Berlin and Seoul. Through his works he attempts to minimize-and ideally-eliminate anthropocentrism from perceptual processes and reintroduce ways of pensive involvement to absolute ideals in a series of artistic operations
His work is focusing on the artistic potential of fluid dynamics, metamaterials (photonic crystals) and especially on the context of magnetohydrodynamics.
Plenum, a space completely filled with matter-Try to imagine zero-total nothingness is the title of his solo exhibition that I visited at Gallery damdam in Berlin. The term "Plenum" was coined by Descartes to des-cribe our world, as a space that is always filled with matter.
It is not possible to consider the notion of absent space and time. Our perception is binary and, hence, we fathom the world through contrasting opposites. For example, we can think of light and darkness, good and evil, being awake and asleep. However, we have trouble considering the notion of non existence and we have even greater difficulties to grasp ideas that are beyond our empirical threshold of perception, such as non space and nontime. Indeed, we built our individual and anthropocentric models of the world based on the experiences we acquire through interactions of our body with matter in the limited period of a single lifetime.
