Aku Ingin (I want) is a visualization based on Sapardi Djoko Damono’s renowned poem with the same title. This work was created as a tribute to the Indonesian legendary author who passed away on July 19, 2020.
This visualization responds to the 2nd paragraph of the poem:
Aku ingin mencintaimu dengan sederhana:
dengan isyarat yang tak sempat disampaikan
awan kepada hujan yang menjadikannya tiada
I want to love you modestly:
with signs unexpressed
clouds to the rain that made them vanish
The visualization was made using p5.js.
