Visual Mixtape

ONGOING PROJECT  Songs Permission Process, Exhibition Planning

" NOIR NARRATION is my second Visual Mixtape finished in August 2019. After the first Visual Mixtape finished, I tend to spend most of my time to dig deeper about the idea of intrapersonal relationship, that later becomes the core of this project. 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 'black/noir', this project divided into 6 track (chapter) that combined featured song from another artist with several photography works to experience altogether "



6 Track [34 min] |  56 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 for around 1,5 year, this project set at the early year of the artist adulthood. 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. NOIR NARRATION as the second title possess a mysterious and ethereal feeling, In this project the artist began to push more the camera as his main media and started to shift the documentary nature of it. The result generated enigmatic and strong implied narrative. Where his first visual mixtape offer such contemplating nature, this project brings higher level of ambiguity to facilitate conversation with the viewer. Whatever the artist bring the table, either memory nor dream state, this project is strong, complex and very intriguing.
