MUSEUM GEDUNG SATE

Multimedia Installation

2018

Gedung Sate is a public building in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia. It was designed according to a neoclassical design incorporating native Indonesian elements by Dutch architect J. Gerber to be the seat of the Dutch East Indies department of Transport, Public Works and Water Management; the building was completed in 1920.

Today, the building serves as the seat of the governor of the province of West Java. Its common name, Gedung sate, is a nickname that translates literally from Indonesian to 'satay building', which is a reference to the shape of the building's central pinnacle - which resemble the shape of one of the Indonesian traditional dish called satay.

When I was working at Infinomedia, an interdisciplinary design studio based in Bandung, West Java, we were asked to do all of the multimedia installations for a museum in the basement of the building as part of the renovation project of Gedung Sate. The installation consists of multiple media and platform, such as virtual reality experience, holographic projection, interactive glass display to video projection mapping on wall, floor, and maquette. I was responsible for almost every installation starting from visual development to spatial implementation as well as early planning for the hardware placement and positioning.
