Taking place in different locations across the Jakarta coastline—check for exact locations—during sunset on 12 August 2022 at 17.54 hrs, sunrise on 27 August 2022 at 5.55 hrs, sunset on 10 September 2022 at 17.51 hrs, and sunrise on 26 September 2022 at 5.40 hrs.
My research revolves around questions of care and liminality in the advocacy work of climate activism. Through engagement with sea water, I intend to listen, share, and pray to the (im)possibility of silence in a crisis-ridden world. Alongside others, I wish to use nearness to the sea, during transitory blue hours, as a way to witness together an inward-outward dance between touching-releasing and imitation-being, as well as the tension of admiration and hurt, empathy and suffering, and awe and melancholy—all weaved in both its remembrance and forgetting.
