The sound of Wind.
This art work inspired by the sound of wind which is growling, screaming, singing, and others sounds which come within at East Indonesia. The experience to feel and see the strong wind in pinery tempt me to dance. That experiences still felt when I already came back in Java. That makes me want to create a dance with wind concept.
Wind gives life and infinity life without asking any feedback. Air is a moving wind. Breath sends us into a deepest room of body, asking to understand the meaning of life and the giver (God). Breath is a door for sanity where mikrokosmos and makrokosmos met. Sound and movement of redemption.
