“The way I work is very simple, I choose areas that I find interesting after doing some research or/and are located near points of interest where people would congregate, such as markets waterfronts, stations. From there I would walk and explore always having in mind the themes I am working with. If anything, Jakarta was difficult because it is easy to fall into overused themes, like dirt and poverty. I wanted to stir the project away from these simple ways of seeing a problematic city and I decided instead to focus in how the population strives to make the place a little better by performing small actions and implementing short term solutions.”
