Journey around Indonesia’s 5 main islands, in miniature of spatial experience. 

These patterns were taken from various Indonesian tribes and their local patterns. While diverse, there are similarities such as the way we chose to dress; how traditionally we draped ourselves with our local colours and patterns. Every patterns represents their tribe/socialization’s local values which is then reflected in the whole installation. By journey within the installation, visitors can experience all local values, while getting acquainted with other cultures and the local values behind them.

Visitor’s spatial experience reflect individual’s journey in context of being Indonesian. Indonesia as a nation is incredibly diverse, while no pattern can represent all Indonesian values, they are all thoroughly embodied in the spirit of "Unity in Diversity" (Bhinneka Tunggal Ika).
