Tamen Anggrek — Jakarta, Indonesia
by Adam Robbert
The video comes to me by way of THIS art and design blog curated by one Jason Jose.
The installation announces a mode of visual beauty that approaches a geological scale. There’s a disorienting quality to it, as though the whole set up were the mouth of some giant manta ray hypnotizing it’s prey with a fabulous display of color and sound. Huxley would have marveled at its beauty, elegance, and ability to completely distract us from our crowded city lives.
