“Sharing Over Netizen Explosion”

Since the last decade, Internet usage has developed a massive social and cultural condition both in its number of users and the impact it creates. The web 2.0 with its’ accessible and free access for its’ users to interact with data either with creating new content, copying, manipulating and distorting has created a social order that is considered real it obscures the boundaries between virtual and reality—especially in social media. In short, Internet or the cyberspace is embodied. The term ‘user’ is no longer relevant since any entity that has access to the Internet has become the Internet itself. This recent condition breaks the boundaries between things with small range and large scale. It allows for the underground positioned itself in the same room and access with the mainstream. Furthermore, Indonesian tradition of tinkering and its corrupted legal control opens up an opportunity for everyone to create, distribute, control, appropriation, and hack the content of the Internet for any purposes, whether commercial or non-profit, for a personal use or a community, for a good deeds or even a life-threatening purposes. Numerous strategies, thoughts and art works are created and available for consumption and reproduction. On the other hand, the government and big corporation that monopolize the major Internet platforms are collaborating together in scanning and collecting data in order to control access and privatizing data in the Internet.

In contrast with Japan which is known as a leading country of Asia in technology, Japan domination in the international consumer technology market and information technology has been shaken by the development of their neighboring country in the past decades. This has been a major influence in social and cultural of Japan. The society has transformed mentality especially the youth to become freelance of multiple jobs for pursuit of their career. The education to become IT expert has shifted, as their education into a full individualistic society, absorbed to transform their social life in to the virtual world.

As a collective—with its egalitarian and democratic approach—that focus on the practice of sharing within Internet and digital platforms, Indonesia Netaudio Forum through an art and cultural festival attempts to open a social space using music and media art that explore the Internet as its major subject as well as critics and intervention on the discourse. The music program in Indonesia Netaudio Festival will feature artists that implemented Internet and digital culture in creating and distributing their works both using the non-mainstream distribution or manipulating the mainstream platform. These include from the musician that distribute their music through netlabels, online forum, online radio or file-hosting/sharing service to gain popularity globally regardless the geography, music making through digital application, the use of Internet platforms like YouTube, hacking PlayStation stick as a source of data and disc-jockeys tool, critical cyberculture as a song theme, cross geographical and globally collaboration, the usage of imaginary characters as a band identity and musical works, to sharing music offline through Internet café or PirateBox network.

Internet and digital technologies have amplified the undercurrents in our current cultural circuit. Community-based media presents narration from perspectives and areas which are often uncovered by national media channels. New values are being created reciprocally through events and its recordings, peripheries and center of cultural production. The emergence of various netlabels have enriched the infrastructure of music production-distribution in online-offline platforms. While internet has been targeted as object of regulations and source of monetization for stakeholders, including government.

In this discussion arena for two hours, three speakers will elaborate the circuit of culture which has been mediated by internet and the movements within from three case study: netlabels, media art, and dangdut koplo. Along with the speakers, the attendees are being invited to respond the following question: within the complexity of today’s circuit of culture, what needs to be done as fellow netizen?

This activity will provide the audience with resources about ferments making that are generated from the internet. This workshop aims to use internet access to find and share knowledge and/or information and try to deliver it with offline interaction while comparing it with experience and knowledge earning that earned from physical activities as social intervention. This comparison shows how physical experiences on knowledge generating are in contrary with knowledge generating from the internet that nowadays has created an imaginary space that is real to it users. This workshop is open for public.


Huge amount internet user and growing fast, has been make new culture the called “internet culture”. Internet has big influence for science, and world view. Only using internet search engine like Google, internet user all over the world has easy internet access to looking for lot of information’s than book on it library. Internet symbolized of decentralization, knowledge, information and data’s so extremely. The effect of internet distribution extremely make it people obesity information suffering. From that “obesity information” extreme information people can’t accepted all that information, just only little bit they are can taking it. Because of the information attacks people come so fast without interruption. Internet is a virtual space has imaginer distance with the internet user, so that, between internet and user has one communication direction. Internet, as a giver and user, as a receiver.

The concept of this workshop tries to order as like internet order to us. Which is internet ordering us many kinds of information? In this workshop we will make lot of workshop such as: fruit wine fermentation workshop, kombucha tea fermentation, and mixology workshop to everyone they have coming. They are freely chosen what they want, and also they are might easy come and go.

Exhibition - “Internet of (No)Things: Ubiquitous Networking and Artistic Intervention”

  • Curator: Riar Rizaldi
  • Opening Ceremony: August 18th 2018, 14.00pm WIB
  • Exhibition: Agugust 18th-28th 2018, 11.00pm-19.00pm WIB
  • Location: Jogja National Museum

The information is anywhere, at any time, and is delivered in a manner appropriate to the location and context. While we can finally get to benefit from the full power of information technology, we miss the ability to absorb the esoteric bodies of knowledge on which it depends. Network technology like mobile telephone and Internet have become the world’s largest shared platform for information exchange—this powerful informatics is already embodied within our life. At the same time, network technology affects the way we communicate—textually, verbally and visually—as well as reconstructed the variety of contemporary technics: art, cinema, biotechnology, digital governance, platform capitalism. One might be wonder, what challenges are presented by the ever-present networked technologies and infrastructures in our cultural activities?

As we drift past tipping points that blurred the distinction between online and offline, as we will have to accept that privacy may become a thing of the past, while a new form of visual language manufactured by the influx of memes from an image board like Futaba Channel, and as a post-truth agenda swarms through Facebook blatantly, the exhibition Internet of (No)Things explores the possibility of artistic practice and aesthetic form that critically interrogated the ubiquity of network technology. The Internet of (No)Things exhibition invites Indonesian and Japanese artist to present the work that reinterpret and intervene the visual, material and idea created by rapid transformation of the Internet culture and infrastructure. Furthermore, the exhibition subverts the jargon of Internet of Things (IoT) to provide a critical thinking that the presence of Internet is already embodied to any activities we experience, it actually becomes nothing. Something that we do not have awareness of its mechanism: things just work. It becomes objects, it becomes air, it becomes space. Internet of nothing.

From the visuality of an iOs Anime makeover photo app to Indonesian language subtitle coded on illegal movie streaming site, from breaking down the fundamental foundation of network system through sonic instrument to showing the black-box of network technology by engineering the physical space, from the speculative approach on biotechnology and its impact on the discourse of reproduction to generating thought and opinion into an electrical current, artists from Indonesia and Japan reimagined, appropriated, utilised and reconstructed the implications of network technology. Amidst the contrast characteristic of technological development, cultural background and psychogeography between Indonesia and Japan, the artists here exchange their own unique approach to the vernacular language of networked society in a global village. Therefore, through the artistic works and intervention by the artists in the Internet of (No)Things exhibition we might encounter the challenges as well as opportunities provided by network technology for our cultural activities.
