The task was to create a map out of a significant event in our hometown based on our own interpretation. My chosen city was Jakarta, where I was born at and where I spent most of my life. In May 1998, a barbaric riot spread all over Jakarta causing major damages and disruptions around the city. The riot was mainly caused by the significant monetary crisis and the discrimination against Chinese-Indonesians.
Based on that concept, I created an animation to portray the aggressiveness of the riot. The animation was projected onto a carved Styrofoam mimicking the map of Jakarta. Each element that forms the map represent the different districts of Jakarta consisting of North, East, West, South and Central. The different depth of each district were based on the factual data according to the significance of the riot.
