Konsep Karya
Inspired from many stories in the history about the fall of civilization and its problems. This piece is driven by the needs to talk about the problems the world faces right now, because they are not beyond our reach. Our biggest problem is not the asteroid that would hit us. It is the threats that we create ourselves, how we're supposed to solve it on our own. The key is our ability to solve the problems in life.


Berangkat dari banyaknya kisah dalam sejarah yang mengisahkan akan runtuhnya peradaban beserta masalah-masalahnya. Ide karya ini berangkat untuk membicarakan persoalan-persoalan yang dihadapi dunia sekarang ini bukanlah hal- hal diluar kendali kita. Masalah terbesar kita bukanlah asteroid yang akan menabrak kita, sesuatu yang tidak bisa kita cegah. Melainkan semua ancaman yang kita buat sendiri yang semestinya dapat kita selesaikan. Dimana kuncinya adalah kemampuan kita dalam menyelesaikan persoalan-persoalan di kehidupan.
