Concept

Kulit adalah representasi dari bagian luar. Sesuatu yang nampak kasat mata namun seringkali berbeda pengertiannya dengan yang inti. Kulit hanyalah bungkus. Seringkali kita terkecoh melihat suatu hal hanya berdasar penampakan kulit luarnya saja, padahal pada bagian dalam di sebalik kulit kita akan mendapati banyak sekali pemahaman yang lebih kompleks dan bermakna. Suatu inti yang lebih hakiki dan senantiasa mengandung misteri.

 

Skin is a representation of the outside part. Something tangible but its meaning is different than the core. Skin is only a cover. Oftentimes we get fooled for watching something based on its outer skin, whereas on the inside, beneath the skin, we would find the more complex and meaningful comprehension. A core that’s more intrinsic and always contains the mystery.
