The issue of humanity has always been interesting to me, especially in Indonesia. One of them is the issue of genocide 65. Emotionally genocide 65 is indeed quite attached to the history of my family, besides that this issue until now has never been confirmed by the state. Through this issue also my mindset developed towards a broader humanitarian issue and not only on issue 65. Not working as a full-time artist, actually helped me in my research work. I learned a lot from people I met, from friends hanging out, co-workers to clients. The meeting of various fields goes hand in hand with my tendency to choose new media as my medium of work. New media made me keep learning and not stop exploring art.
