Introspeksi Diri (Self Introspection) is a collage made up of 288 bridge card-sized panels capturing various individual problems and memories over a period of time.
To the artist, there will always be meaningful moments in life, where each captured moment can become an opportunity for self-reflection to measure one’s capacity to achieve identified life goals. Hence, the collection of these moments represents a journey of contemplation which sometimes arises out of fear and trauma. Yet, at the same time, it is also a life process to remind us to be better human beings, for “the higher we are placed, the more humbly we should walk” (seperti ilmu padi, kian berisi kian merunduk).
