Concept

Periklanan (advertising), ulasan produk, unboxing, dan tata cahaya display merupakan beberapa dari sekian banyak elemen yang mengkonstruksi makna dari objek-objek yang hadir di hadapan kita hari ini. Bagai ruang-ruang kosong antara huruf pada kata atau kalimat hingga akhirnya kata tersebut terbaca, begitu pula elemen-elemen tersebut mengambil alih ruang negatif yang berada di luar sebuah objek. Hal tersebut kemudian memengaruhi perspektif kita dalam melihat objek; melihatnya lebih jelas atau sebaliknya menjadi bias.


Advertising, product reviews, unboxing, display of lighting are some of many elements that construct the meaning of objects that are present in front of us today. Like the empty spaces in between letter in a word or a sentence that make the word can be read, that's how those elements take over the negative room outside the object. Such thing affects our perspective while watching the object; whether we can see it clearer or otherwise.
