Concept

Karya ini adalah upaya untuk menyusun kembali ruang untuk bertemu, bermain dan mempertahankan interaksi sosial di era digital. Konsep ruang personal dan ruang publik telah dikaburkan oleh media sosial. Paradoks baru berupa perubahan perspektif dalam memaknai interaksi fisik adalah tantangan yang perlu kita jawab dengan segera.

 

This piece of work is an attempt to reconstruct the space for us to meet, play and maintain the social interaction in this digital era. Social media has blurred the concept of private and public space. This new paradox, which is the changing of perspective in interpreting the physical interaction, is a new challenge that we urgently need to answer.
