The crowd was crazy and the exhibition had been extended right by then..it happened longer than it used to be on the poster. This time most of the artwork had something that innovative, interactive and edgy. A honorable mention were the SuBo-stand for Suro and Boyo-an awesome 3D-printed character of the urban folktale animal of Surabaya created by my college who’s also happen to be my boss-Pak Aris (https://www.instagram.com/subosuroboyo/) , and a versatile algorithmic 3D simulated paper craft hanging on the wall, a reminiscence of its creator’s visage worth to acclamation-“Selepas Belantara” by Erandaru Srisanto. BUT the Mirror on the wall said that the fairest of them all was the one and only..the one that also stole the most press attention was Cindy and Piyok’s work..
That was the majestic optical illusion shadow playing mock up of Surabaya’s city scrappers-“KOTAKITA”. Even the best part was that they built up the mini version of the famous features in Surabaya, such as BNI tower, Graha Pena, Tugu Pahlawan and The historical Jembatan Merah. Nodded envy-ly this work rocked the event, they stole the spotlight! Off course from the moment the exhibition was opened ’till the last day this event was ever happened, the press just kept coming again and again, and it was definitely become ‘the face’ on every headlines these journalists ever wrote about.
