The “Jagad Cilik – Jagad Gede” installation will be shown permanently on Ruci’s Joint 1st floor. Just hit it if you are around Jl Suryo- Senopati, Jakarta.
It was such a pleasure to born and making the yarn start growing, larger, deeper, and moving forward. From just a simple string, until it become a line, a shape and a space.
Jagad cilik – Jagad gede, means microcosm and macrocosm. The paired concept of macrocosm and microcosm presents the idea that there is a corresponding similarity in pattern, nature, or structure between human beings and the universe. The concept of microcosm/macrocosm views human as a smaller representation of the universe and the universe as an anthropomorphic existence. This concept is found throughout the history of thought from ancient times through the renaissance, and in various religious traditions.
It’s about our journey, as a human being to seek our identity and our divinity aspect or godhead of things that come from a supernatural power or deity, such as a god, supreme being, Creator-God or spirits (or any others ‘nick name’ that would works perfectly for you).
If the concept of microcosm/macrocosm views human as a smaller representation, than the human body is made up of the same fundamental particles that the entire universe is made of. We can say that Jagad Cilik is a sacred space that coextensive with the universe (Jagad Gede).
Human is referred to as the universe child or a microcosm or small world , while the universe known as the macrocosm or universe is big which is a manifestation of God himself. (But) unfortunately, on the journey it is not easy to defining our self. Every time we try to defining it, in the end it narrows the real nature of the seld. The definition always bring us into a piece of a complex reality.
