Visual Mixtape

ONGOING PROJECT  Songs Permission Process, Exhibition Planning

" DEPTH OF BLUE is my first Visual Mixtape finished in May 2016. Started as a final project to finish Fine Art Photography Course under Henrycus Napitsunargo and Anis Annisa Maryam supervision in Institut Teknologi Bandung. This work can be seen as my journey to fathom the complexity of human emotions in general, and as a journey to encounter my personal emotional state from time to time, by trying to package certain dissected part of emotion into a physical form. Each of the Visual Mixtape has a certain theme that labeled by a name that has color connotation to it (reference to Goethe {1810}). The Visual Mixtape has the functionality to drive audience feelings to reach those dissected emotion by enhancing 2 senses to perceive the work embodied by using photography work and arranging an audio mixtape from pre-existed song. By bringing the feeling of 'blue', this project divided into 6 track (chapter) that combined featured song from another artist with several photography works to experience altogether "



6 Track [32 min] |  36 Photographs | Available in 2 Format

More Context Regarding The Project

We are accustomed to regard emotions as something we perceived from specific stimuli. But only by going through a certain series of events can we perceive those emotions. Conversely, even a tiniest difference in each event may forms entirely different feelings. The possibility of this occurrence is highly probable considering humans never have and never will have an identical idea when perceiving something. Thus is it possible to feel what other feel genuinely? Is becoming empathetic toward others even allowed for one to imagine? Or is it just a nonsensical fantasy?


These Visual Mixtape is a realization of a long-suppressed-compulsion; a culmination of his personal emotional journey. A round of question, a bullet shot into his consciousness time and time again. There was this urge, the profound necessity to deform the formless; to dissect emotions only to forge it back together into a physical form. A haven where anyone could visit or revisit to embrace those emotions.

Worked in 4 month span, this work is the artist first coherence work. He utilize these visual mixtape works as a media to research, understand and convey his personal, long-term overwhelming feeling. Each visual mixtape can represent a phase of the artist emotional state at the time. DEPTH OF BLUE as the first title in the series offer certain bittersweet temperature that trigger the feelings of contemplation or perhaps a melancholy. Most of the photographs that presented have the qualities of openness and completeness. Space also presented very well for the audience to explore their own feelings that are generated by the mood of this work.
