Multiverse is a kinetic light installation as an imaginative exploration and conception of a ‘portal’ machine that connects our world to other worlds that run aligned with ours, a parallel universe. As the artists, we imagine that the parallel universe as a world that is very personal to each individual, a manifestation of the experience and knowledge of each person. Through the light polarization phenomenon, we take a glimpse into a mysterious and intriguing world as a visual representation of their alternate universe. By constructing a device in our own version of utopian ”futuristic-design”, the device acts as a machine to automate the light polarization process, which is then projected in the space as our visualization of the parallel universe.
It was a collaborative project with Maulana Ahmad, Bandung-based artist for Instrumenta Festival 2019 that took place at National Gallery of Indonesia, Jakarta.
