C6H12O6 + 6 O2

Abstract & Concept

Indonesia has important roles as one big world lung with its tropical plants and forests that contributes world largest O2. Therefore, Indonesian society as part of world society play important part to keep world nature heritage of life sustainability for the next generation. Plants need a photosynthesis process to produce O2 where hotosynthesis are very complex process and it need physical, chemical and biological process itself. Photosynthesis has equivalent of 6CO2 + 12 H2O + light energy —> C6H12O6 + 6O2 + 6H2O.

This work is a hypothesis of research that being done through scientific process. Science combined with other cross disciplines such as arts, technology and design which create an innovative art/work aimed to be useful for any disciplines.

The work of C6H12O6 + O2 uses photosynthesis process of bacterias and plants arround us. Photosynthesis process that happened on earth showed on culture medium and can be seen directly through bacterias’ phototroph that produce pigments. The photosynthesis are digitally generated to be converted as datas, sound and visualization that can be seen and heard. This art/work aimed to elevate people awareness on how important to keep the nature from any polutions.
