This art installation is a representation of a stage of transformation between infancy and maturity within the contemporary Indonesian design world. There has been a surge of modernism penetrating our lives. Influences have come from all parts of the world which indirectly shape the notion of modern design within the local society. Chrysalis is a development of understanding towards modernism within Indonesia. Its shape conceived from a frozen movement of an organism blossoming towards a direction yet to be known.
Made out of Rattan, a material that is common towards the local eyes but haven’t secured its proper respect, the installation is mounted on top of a stage to be represented as work-in-process and also a milestone for this development of understanding towards what modern contemporary Indonesian deign can be in the near future.
