Concept

Cara kita melihat sebuah objek kadang hanya dari satu sisi saja. Perspektif kita dalam mengetahui suatu hal lebih banyak ditentukan oleh pemahaman yang sudah berlaku secara umum, sehingga kita tidak pernah meluaskan imajinasi kita pada hal lain yang sangat mungkin terjadi. Perspektif dan pemahaman secara umum tadi kemudian hanya akan membelenggu kita pada pola yang seolah-olah sudah baku dan tidak bisa diganggu gugat.


Sometimes we view an object from one side. Our perspective in knowing something often determined by a comprehension applied publicly, therefore we never expand our imagination and reach other possibility. The common perspective and comprehension then would only trap us into a pattern that we can’t question and as if it’s already normative.
