An essay on my concept of Substanzraum, the Space of Substance.

This new concept of space, is analog to the dialectic of mold and cast. It considers global space filled with actual substances traveling throughout our planet, shaping each other through time and gravity and thus shaping the space we live in.


Excerpt/Introduction:

This is the story of the invention of a new spatial concept that is analog to the dialectic of mold and cast. While looking into a vast natural scenery, our gaze is locating landmarks comprised of objects and frames to hold on to, to differentiate areas and to order the larger space with its hard to grasp entirety. Space itself is floating, or streaming between these landmarks.
The global space is filled with actual substances traveling around the planet, shaping each other through time and gravity and thus shaping the space we live in.
I call this conception of space Substanzraum, the space of substance.
