“Aku, Engkau” is a short monologue video that tells about a woman, an Art Practitioner, having an imaginary conversation between her and Time. It tells you about an individual’s views on the changes affecting the relevancy of creating Art. A change that questions a person’s willingness for adaptation. Do we adopt out of relevancy or stay out of love with the craft you have developed and the creativity you believe in since the day you started. Everywhere you go, people tend to say to you “Hey, technology is evolving, you have to step up your game”. The technology involves money. Do we really have to step up and splurge in a huge amount of money in order to be the very best? Whatever happens to creativity? We are living in a world where everything is evolving but each of us has our own credibility in crafting our Art.
There are lots of ways to improve our skills and traits but the question is: to what extent do we go to catch up with the relevancy to provide sustenance for ourselves in the art world? Is the lack of gadgets or tools are to be blamed for when we are not living it up to our fullest potential? We doubt ourselves and start to compare with others. It is never about installing the finest shelves in your room filled with the latest tools. It has always been about how you navigate yourself to build on your creativeness and execute your Art with the way you feel with the utmost satisfaction. Sometimes, we tend to forget the happiness we have in creating Art due to self-doubts and criticism from others. Eventually, all we have to do is to believe and stay loyal to ourselves in order to succeed.
