How do shadows come to life?
Entry for Wacom : Bring Your Vision to Live Contest
The big idea is Wayang, Inspired by the Mahabarata Epoch..
The story is about battle between Korawa as the antagonist,
And Pandawa as the protagonist
As the emissary from Korawa, I choose Sangkuni/Sengkuni, the eldest from Korawa family, the person who is responsible for the Mahabarata war and the symbol of evil
And from the Pandawa side, I choose Yudhistira, the oldest one from the five Pandawa,
A very wise brother and also the symbol of good.
Concept behind the Concept
The philosophical base of the art, is about GOOD and EVIL in human heart. There is no such thing as good OR evil, there are only good AND evil.
Yes, every human has power to control their own deeds, why should we always blaming Angel or Devil because of good thing or bad thing we did?
The power to control our own heart is symbolized by Dalang (Shadow Puppeteer) , which can play both sides of the story, as a good character, or an Evil character.
are you a good or an evil person? Its in your hand to decide
