La obra del compositor y artista coreano, Yunchul Kim, que actualmente reside en Berlín, gira en torno al potencial artístico de la dinámica de fluidos. Utilizando ferrofluidos, crea instalaciones que exploran las propiedades de la materia y evocan procesos naturales a nivel cósmico o en el interior de un organismo imaginario. Kim trabaja en la Universidad de Artes Aplicadas de Viena y es cofundador, con la historiadora del arte Lucía Ayala y el doctor en astrofísica, Jaime Forero, del grupo de investigación Fluid Skies, colectivo dedicado a explorar la materialidad fluida del universo desde las perspectivas de la astrofísica, el arte, la historia y la filosofía.
