Jungle of Nusa (YouFab Global Creative Awards 2019)
It is an interactive sound installation that requires collective participation. Also, there’s the element of self-discovery because there’s no instructions on how to “use” it. I wanted people to “talk” to each other in an analogue way, instead of only “talking” on their handphones. I wanted the sound of people’s voices to connect other people. By speaking into the installation, a person will discover that their voice will travel to other parts of the artwork. There is also a component, where by using a guitar pedal, a person’s voice can be distorted. This is a way for me to give ownership to the people who will “take care” of this work.
