The New East Indies: October Release

Started at the end of 2015, I did research relating to this collection, when I concluded that there was an ‘imaginative vortex’ in the development of our civilization. I tried to interpret the concept of ‘imaginative vortex’ into 6 points of view, 2 of them are Tessitura and Filogenesis.



Tessitura: A concept which explored chaos from a positive view point and examined the relationship between mankind and the universe. I took the word ‘Tessitura’ from music, defining a range of notes that offered the best sound texture and the most comfortably produced by a musical source (an instrument or a singer). I interpreted Tessitura using a heated orangutan’s face as my subject. I tried to picture their habitat’s condition enduring from forest fire as a result of human’s carelessness in overexploiting the natural resources.



Filogenesis: Phylogenesis is the evolutionary development and diversification of a species or group of organisms. In my essay, ’Filogenesis’ (Indonesian term) concluded a new change and defined a new identity. I had manifested the meaning of this word into a satirical phrase ‘Orang Gak Punya Utan’ in the same context of an orangutan as the subject. Along with the manifolds of disasters in forest fire, indirectly orangutans would be losing their rainforests and humans would also suffer the great loss due to the supply of oxygen. Note that this is only a small fraction of the loss.
