Concept

Karya ini berkisah antara relasi mesin, alam, dan manusia. Alam memiliki fitrah dan kehendaknya sendiri. Oleh campur tangan manusia selama ini, alam dibentuk secara paksa berdasarkan ilmu-ilmu yang diciptakan alih-alih menjaga keharmonisan. Dalam bentuk-bentuk tertentu; bahasa, ilmu pengetahuan, religi, termasuk estetika—manusia merumuskan aturan dan kriteria pemenangan atas dirinya. Penaklukan dan penjelajahan dilakukan. Manusia semakin haus akan eksistensi. Mesin-mesin tanpa ukuran mengambil alih permainan alam dan manusia, alam merespon ganas, manusia menghadapi penderitaan yang diciptakannya sendiri.

 

This piece of work tells the tale about the relation of machine, nature, and human. Nature has its own disposition and will. All this time human intervention, through the sciences they make, forcefully molding the nature, instead of maintaining the harmony. Until certain level; language, knowledge, religion, and even aesthetichuman formulate the rule and the criteria of how they win. Conquest and colonization commited. Human are increasingly thirsty for the existence. The machines without measurement take over the play of nature and human, nature gives a vicious response, human face the suffering that they create themselves.
