Konsep Karya
Karya kolaborasi Bagus Pandega dan Kei Imazu mencoba untuk menghadirkan fenomena perubahan iklim global. Dalam riset mereka, diketahui bahwa salah satu instrumen perubahan iklim adalah deforestasi dan penebangan pohon secara masal yang terjadi di Indonesia. Data menyebutkan bahwa hutan di Sumatera dan Kalimantan termasuk dalam 11 wilayah di dunia yang berkontribusi terhadap lebih dari 80% deforestasi secara global hingga tahun 2030. Jika terjadi dalam skala besar, deforestasi akan mengancam kehidupan ribuan spesies, beresiko menimbulkan bencana erosi dan banjir, menurunkan kualitas air, serta berpotensi menggoyah ketahanan iklim global. Selama periode tahun 2011 – 2016, para peneliti menemukan industri sawit telah mengakibatkan deforestasi seluas 2,08 juta hektar atau 23 persen dari kerusakan hutan nasional. Meski terdapat juga di Sumatera dan Papua, deforestasi jenis ini ditemukan paling banyak terjadi di Kalimantan. Instalasi Pandega dan Imazu dilengkapi dengan perangkat mesin-lukis. Gerakan dan kinerjanya dipicu oleh kondisi tumbuhan kelapa sawit yang dihadirkan di ruang pamer. Perangkat eketronis modular membaca arus listrik organik yang bekerja dalam tumbuhan tersebut dan memprosesnya menjadi sebuah sinyal yang mengatur pergerakan mesin lukis tersebut. Sebuah karya video yang menampilkan fenomena faktual seputar hutan di Indonesia dan orangutan yang mulai kehilangan habitatnya.

Bagus Pandega and Kei Imazu s collaborative work is an attempt to present a phenomenon of the global climate change. In their research, they have found that one of the factors of the current climate change is deforestation and mass logging in Indonesia. The data mentions that Sumatra and Kalimantan forests are among the 11 regions of the world that contribute to more than 80% of global deforestation until 2030. On a large scale, deforestation threatens the lives of thousands of species, potentially cause erosion and floods, reduce water quality, and destabilize the global climate. During the period of 2011-2016, researchers found that the national palm oil industry resulted in the deforestation of 2.08 million hectares or 23% of the national forest destruction. While also taking place in Sumatra and Papua, this kind of deforestation is found most frequently in Kalimantan. Pandega and Imazu s installation is equipped with a painting instrument of which movement and operation are triggered by the condition of palm tree presented in the exhibition room. A modular electronic device reads the organic electric current in the plants and processes it into a signal that regulates the movement of the machine. Additionally, a video displays a factual phenomenon surrounding Indonesian forest, and orangutan have lost their natural habitat.
