The Atlas of Semarang investigates Semarang’s position in the global map of the world. This project uses the images atlas’s platform (imageatlas.org) developed collaboratively by The Late Aaron Swartz and Taryn Simon, to discover cultural differences and similarities on certain keyword in 51 countries selected. The keywords are ten words I choose randomly and put it side by side with the word ‘semarang’. The images produced are the top results in these countries and presented as an sequence of index.

This series is part of my collective exhibition at Semarang Gallery which is focused on The City of Semarang in Central Java.
