During the last 3 years, I have been experimenting with the anamorphic approach otherwise referred to as projection perspective. This approach relies on visibility and perspectives, as well as presenting optical ilusion (3D) as an effect, an approach I find interesting which enables me to resurrect events or object that might be important to reappear in various contexts.
This time I am focusing on the recent drying up of wells in residences of Yogyakarta. This is problem for as all. Water is a basic need and our collective right, and the government should be able to answer the challenge of providing water to the community and the surrounding areas of modern developments.
