Well I'm only a photographer, so I let the people from ALUR brief you on their project:
"The Festival in 2010 will be a city-wide celebration of architecture in the capital. As London gears up for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games we look at ways that planners, architects and local communities play their part in the development of 'The Welcoming City'. Everyone is invited to join the Festival community, to develop projects to take part in debates; to investigate ways that London can be made a better place to live, work and play; to explore the city through guided walks and bike rides and to examine change in the capital in a celebratory way.
A wide range of independent events will surround a number of core activities - some focused on high profile weekend events - others taking place throughout the Festival period.
We are already planning major projects for Olympic Year. The LFA2012 will take place from 23 June - 8 July 2012 and will highlight London's architecture to a global audience just weeks before the start of the Games.
This year, the Indonesian Embassy has chosen ALUR DESIGN GROUP to represent the country in the festival. Alur is an interdisciplinary design and creative studio envisioned by a group of Indonesian architects and designers who are practicing in London.
The team consists of Ardes Perdhana, Monique Suksmaningsih, Prama Milyardi, Rizki Nindito, Olivia Putihrai, and Kuncara Wicaksana. They met in London with the same ambition, to promote Indonesian art and architecture.
Indonesian installation at Welcoming City LFA shows how the landscape of diversity of the country is transformed into contemporary critical discourse. The installation entitled Landscape of Diversity derived from the country’s origin and rich traditional culture that Indonesian proud of. In October 2009, UNESCO designated Indonesian batik as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. The installation, using a collective batik pattern from the country, is then processed, dissected, mutated and emerged as an experimental landscape of diversity.
The first element of the show, the reality, is an exploration of Indonesian landscape within the international world through both factual data and cognitive perception. These include processes that were emerging at the time as the result of changes in cultural, historical influence as well as politico-economic practices. The thickness of the urban layers will drive the second element of the exhibition.
The second element and main part of the exhibition is an introduction of an ongoing research investigating the new opportunities of implementation from the cultural heritage. By materializing one of the traditional batik patterns as an architectural prototype, the imaginative landscape tries to demonstrate it as a geometry system in a wooden landscape structure. It attempts to give new meanings and richens the current Indonesian culture."
