The Floor is a part of Bandung Design Biennale 2021: Excavate. Exhibited at Galeri Ruang Dini from 5th until 20th November 2021.
The Floor is made of aluminium foil, floats in approximately 450 x1000 cm2 area coverage, constructed manually by hand for about 3 days.
The Floor is a showcase of site-specific, interventional, spatial,
and discourse constructions by using the floor as a medium of work.
How thin is it? Is it sturdy?
Will it break under a certain amount of pressure?
What is underneath?
How would it feel if we could step on it?
The floor is a fundamental element in spatial creation.
How much should we intervene?
This study invites us to reconsider, rethink the ideas of floor: its roles and its characters.
We modify the floor into a series of elevated thin planes.
The frail and thin nature of the new floor creates a new awareness
about space in the absence of objects and humans.
This intervention intensifies the presence of the floor,
and maybe changes the way we see the space.
