Project Narration

City that never die. That’s how we call Jakarta.

Many labels that stick on it actually, like cosmopolitan, worst traffic, busy, noisy, dirty, and very contrast city. We can see obviously between the wealthy and poor citizen, between the exclusive community and slums. Somehow from that situation, Jakarta than has a very discriminative life. The next problem,are the habits also different?

Maybe, but not so different at all. It can be caused by less education, less knowledge, or never know  about negative impact of all of their bad habits. First habit,which is become the basic problem of Jakarta city is people never throw rubbish in the right place.  It gives many “presents” to our beloved Jakarta.

Presents??? Yah so many unexpected gives , deseases is one of them. Deseases never choose its receiver so whether rich or poor, it just in. Let us see deeper, where are the rubbish being thrown daily? The faster way is just throw it to  the nearby open space. River is one of it. Many reasons that we can guess about that bad habit. River can flow anything, but remember if there aren’t any disturbances. They just throw it, nobody knows, and let it flows.

Then second habit, which is the progress factor of the first habit. The passive citizens don’t care much about their environment, because, all the world know that, Jakarta is a very big city and very busy. Everybody just care about their own business. Nothing can make them realize that their habits make them in danger.So the single way to make them know the real condition is makes them feel it.

How? Touch, smell, see, feel, hear, these five sense can be the usefull tools sometimes to punish the human. Make them feel uncomfortable, see the disgusting, smell the stinky,  touch the unhealthy living and hear the sound of “yewh or yaks”. Sometimes teaching is not always as smooth as you think, being cruel to teach the stubborn maybe one of the best way.

With all of that , are that enough??just one more steps, they must have it. The river, which is placed as the giant rubbish bin, must be tasted by the human. Hoping they will be amazed of the process, from where they had being experience in the beginning , till the recycling area, of course the water can be taste and it is clean, but make people to drink that  is hard. They must believe that the water is really clean. So we need to invite them to see the cleaning process.

At the end we just can hope, they will change their bad habit and the other side, they become the participant of healthy city healthy life.

this is the river

another side of busy jakarta city
