Current Concentration





Material

- Papuan craft
- replica of Majapahit terracotta beads
- replica of tiny beads of Timor
- cow bell
- black cord

Concept

I fell for this craft from Papua in a craft exhibition. The man looks alive. His face speaks, the body moves. Not just a figure without expression. He looks more alive after wearing tiny beads choker from Timor. Many Papua men like to decorate self with accessories.

The intermingled string with beads big and small shows the hard current. The current in his behind is calmer.

He focuses himself on the current that lies in front, not in the back.
