Mud flow ambient
A very cool ambient installation was done to commemorate the Lusi volcano eruption in Indonesia. It was recreated by Jaringan Advokasi Tambang (JATAM), a mining advocacy network located there. Back in 2006 an earthquake close to a natural gas drilling site triggered a huge volcano mud flow that covered over 10,000 homes. So, these pieces were placed in the road in front of the Idonesian Presidential Palace to remind viewers of the turmoil the mud flow caused in people’s lives. The message was “Bangu korban Lapindo Sidoarjo bangun hidupnya kembali” (English translation: “Help the victims of Sidoarjo mud-flow to build their life back”). Actors even were placed amongst the faux ruins.
