Translocation, Root Growth and Soil Respiration of Great Tropical Plants #01

150x200cm | Acrylic on canvas
2018


Konsep Karya
This work is the depiction of the condition of area changes in the littoral of coast and sea, caused by anything but nature, also caused by plant shifting and man-made. The coastal area, especially in the south coast of Java, which naturally experiences such change, anticipated by planting the ironwood because such plant can serve as ‘wind-barrier’. Its root preserves the area of sand dune and fertilizing the land around it. It started in 1999, when a team from UGM and people, who lived near that area, started to plant the ironwood from Madura at the littoral of Samas and Parangtritis Beach.


Karya ini adalah penggambaran dari kondisi perubahan area di pesisir pantai dan laut, yang diakibatkan selain oleh faktor alam, juga karena perpindahan tanaman maupun ulah manusia. Kawasan pantai, terutama pantai selatan Jawa, yang secara alamiah banyak mengalami perubahan tersebut, kemudian diantisipasi dengan penanaman pohon cemara laut karena pohon ini bisa berfungsi sebagai ‘windbarrier’. Akar pohon cemara laut dapat menjaga wilayah gumuk pasir serta dapat menyuburkan tanah/lahan pertanian di sekitarnya. Hal ini dimulai tahun 1999 ketika tim dari UGM dan masyarakat sekitar mulai menanam cemara laut asal Madura di pesisir pantai samas dan Parangtritis.
