In April, I’m helping out my friend Lintang Radittya – Kenalirangkaipakai for his presentation on Javanese Modular, a modular synthesizer that he build. The presentation called Pengolah Sinyal, also presenting a collaboration of Lintang with several artists including myself. The event took place in Kedai Kebun Forum on 25 April 2015.
In Djerassi, Budi Prakosa and I made an experiment in synchronising audio to an old TV in Djerassi’s lounge. With Laura’s permission, we took the TV and play with it in our studio. I hook some analog synth to the TV signal, while Iyok made some codes for visualisation of the 8-bit mixtape. Some documentation of the experiment bellow.
In October 2012, lifepatch was invited for an art science exhibition, part of an event called Bioartnergy. This event was organized by Agriculture Faculty of Gadjah Mada University (UGM) Yogyakarta, one of lifepatch’s main collaborator. In this exhibition, UGM asked us to make several installation works, responding 6x6m room. So we thought of making 3 installations responding to the theme of the events.
An article written by Lauranne Callet published in Jakarta Post daily newspaper. The article was reviewing urbancult project which started by Agung Firmanto, Budi Prakosa and me in 11 November 2011. The article was written after an interview with us, including several street artists such as HereHere, Antitank and ~1escV? (FR). The online version on Jakarta Post website [>>link<<], in Lauranne Callet’s personal blog [>>link<<], and on lifepatch’s site [>>link<<]. There’s a screen capture of the online version, I posted bellow.
In April 2012, lifepatch participated in geekfest 2012 that was held in Bandung Indonesia. geekfest is a festival for community that working in technology. The festival is more of a public style festival, where people from various backgrounds came to see the displays of every participating communities. During our participation for this festival we displayed ‘microtransformer’ installation, a simple display of tropical fruit process (from IB:SC project) with a little artistic touch to attract the audiences in general. The responds was quite aggressive. :)
On August 2011, I participated an exhibition called “Membajak TV” organized by Komunitas Salihara in Jakarta, Indonesia. The exhibition was curated by Krisna Murti, a media artist and art writer from Indonesia. The exhibition brought the issue of “pirate”, in which the selected artists for the exhibition created works based on their own perspective to the issue itself. As Krisna stated in his curatorial, “Television, controlled by political forces and corporate-has been formed and constructing reality, behavioral and cultural identity so that later generations came to interpret it in various ways: to create a range of cultural awareness, question, tease, criticize, to intervene, reflect, and even offer solution. The emergence a new generation of astists presents a close link between advance media technology with television culture through three main things: technological developments, the relations of political information history on television with the development of video art, and the emergence of video artist under 30 years generation – which is a generation “nurtured” by our television culture. The cultural position in which the video artists acted upon is a contrary to the community groups who interpret television technology solely as consumption, entertainment, or lifestyle.”
