How long did you stuck on the cellophane tape
How long did you fell into the water

They were very hardworking group
Please don’t be ruthless to them
I’m not allow my family and friends to kill Ant.

Those are the contradictions that developed within me right after I read the “Seen from the Window”(Lefebvre, Henri, 1996:219-227).
Air pollution; we breath every second.
Water pollution; we drink healthier, I wish.
Soil pollution; we plant as we can.
Noise pollution; I prefer meditation music.
Radioactive pollution; we can use other energy, I think.
Thermal pollution; we need food but we want more?
Light pollution; I’m living in the city, that’s what I can see at night, even daytime.
Visual pollution; I need information of your products? Not all of them, please don’t keep me posting advertisement on my timeline (Facebook).

Grit is needed, while doing, studying, learning, and making artworks.
“Grit is passion and perseverance for very long-term goals. Grit is having stamina. Grit is sticking with your future, day in, day out, not just for the week, not just for the month, but also for years, and working really hard to make that future a reality.”
(The key to success? Grit, 2013) by Angela Lee Duckworth, a psychologist.

It’s an impression, borderless, horizontal, square, round or any form, involves gases, temperature, distance, echo, environment, scenery, tranquil, busy, nature, man made, common, spectacular, co-ordinate with five senses. It’s everywhere, see it while you are walking, hiking, swimming, picnic, having coffee, reading magazine or dreaming. It has height, weight, beat, and rhythm, sound, movement or still. It’s a drawing, a sculpture, an ornament, a video or movie. It has an intimate relationship in human, a side, live view, impression or an imagination space.

Colour is one of the important elements in my life. Even black or white, it is still considered as a color. Color comes from the spectrum, the measurement of the different light waves. Color range in my palette is uncountable. White as snow, sea waves and cloud; Blue from the sky and sea; Green, the color of leaves, trees, lake; Red is hot like fire, blood, hibiscus; sunflower is yellow, lavender is purple, orange can be the orange. Seasons change, the color of the nature changes too.
