Konsep Karya
The title of this work means “Listen to what He says.” Its basic idea is about PARTICIPATION TO SHARE, and it is inspired by the story of Jesus who fed 5000 people only with 5 loaves and 2 fish, it is written in Matthew 14: 13-21. Five loaves and 2 two fish are the real form of compassion and God’s love to mankind. To put it simply, participation to share is the involvement of many people to give what they have to their fellow sincerely. Such process also appears in the process of creating the work, it starts from something small and simple, but the end result is something big. Process of creating the work needs the involvement and the participation of many people. The participation may be in the form of thought, physical work, media, criticism, insinuation and even cynicism and scorn from others. The participation from other people is the implementation of the heart that is touched to share. Then all subject and object around us is an inseparable participant in process of creating the work, because the process itself may become the work.

Judul karya ini berarti “Dengarkan apa yang Dia katakan.” Ide dasarnya adalah tentang PARTISIPASI UNTUK BERBAGI, yang inspirasinya berasal dari kisah Yesus memberi makan 5000 orang dengan hanya 5 roti dan 2 ikan sebagaimana dituliskan dalam Injil Matius 14 : 13-21. Lima roti dan dua ikan adalah wujud nyata belas kasih dan cinta Tuhan kepada umat manusia. Secara sederhana partisipasi untuk berbagi adalah keterlibatan banyak orang untuk memberikan apa yang mereka punya kepada sesama dengan tulus hati. Hal tersebut nampak pula dalam proses berkarya, yang dimulai dari hal kecil dan sederhana namun menghasilkan sesuatu yang besar. Proses berkarya itu membutuhkan keterlibatan dan partisipasi banyak orang. Partisipasi bisa berupa pemikiran, kerja fisik, media, kritikan, saran, sindiran bahkan sikap-sikap sinis dan cibiran dari orang lain. Partisipasi orang lain adalah implementasi dari ketersentuhan hati untuk berbagi. Maka semua subyek dan obyek yang ada di sekitar kita adalah sebuah partisipan yang tidak dapat dilepaskan dalam proses berkesenian, karena proses itu sendiri menjadi sebuah karya.
