Situ Ciburuy; Museum Plan

Concept

Karya ini merupakan rencana proyek museum yang akan saya kerjakan di sebuah danau bernama Situ Ciburuy, terletak di daerah pinggiran kota Bandung. Kehadiran pabrik-pabrik di sekitar danau mengubah ekosistem sekitar. Saat ini Situ Ciburuy dalam keadaan terbengkalai, terlupakan bahwa dulunya pernah menjadi danau yang menjadi penopang para nelayan. Saya menggunakan limbah sisa olah produksi pabrik pensil yang berada di bantaran danau untuk menggambarkan ide tentang "Museum Situ Ciburuy" yang tengah saya kerjakan di sana.

 

This piece of work is the plan of a museum project that I will execute at the lake called Situ Ciburuy, in the suburb of Bandung. The presence of factories around the lake change the ecosystem nearby. Now, Situ Ciburuy is in an abandoned state, the fact that this place was used to be a lake which supported the fishermen is already forgotten. I use the waste residue from pencil factory located at the bank of the lake to depict the idea of "Museum Situ Ciburuy" that I'm working on there.
