I never saw a ray of light, I mean for real. Then I had a chance to visit Muna island, a little island down south east Sulawesi, Indonesia. In my trip over the ocean, I almost never closed my eyes.

This was very nice, amid Jakarta stressful traffic.

Next week, a person who is very responsible for American public health (not God), will visit his childhood memories in Menteng, Jakarta. Several TV station celebrate this moment with their feature human-interest program (i.e. interviewing Obama’s teacher, featuring Obama school, and so on). A lot of people who work for US company Jakarta base, discuss his ‘come home’ journey over and over over lunch or in the cubic transparent smoking room. You know the topic, expecting this G to G encounter will turn into drama.
But anyway, there in between two quiet escalators in Plaza Indonesia, Obama is sitting in a Becak (Jakarta traditional transport), his right hand is signaling victory, his laugh as if he watch’ Funny or Die TV, his legs rest in British cross style which is relax and elegant, his socks seems embodying James Brown and Michael Jackson. He is here – in an artwork format – as one of many artwork exhibited for Plaza Indonesia 20th Anniversary in conjunction with BAZAAR ART (Harper’s Bazaar Magazine). The artist, Wilman Sjahnur, replace Obama’s body with Polysterin.
