Description: What’s Good Today is a project of Timoteus Anggawan Kusno since 2 years ago. What’s Good Today is a way of responding and looking at an ordinary day in ordinary place with unordinary way (can be extraordinary or just ordinary). Its purpose is trying to see one good thing from a day of routine, fatigue, and heat.
Timoteus doesn’t show his idea intentionally in a shape of special media, but he explores kinds of languages closely and simple. He tends to put it in different manners close to our daily life.
Dialogue is something that is offered and exhibited here, through series of atmospheres, an optimistic mood. Looking around at the simplicity can be potentially taken for broadening the dialogue. It is also trying to give space for opinions of the happening dialogues and issues.
This project is an idea by Timoteus Anggawan Kusno. In doing this project, he collaborated and involved some photographers such as Lindsay Goodrich, Matt Aitken, Doni Maulistya, Deni Yudhistira, and Ratri Nur Wulandari, along with two writers Purnawan Ipang (redactor of www.itsmusicboxtoday.com) and Fajar Maatha (a zine independen activist).
Earlier, What’s Good Today is collectively enclosed in a blog called www.whatsgoodtoday.co.nr , whose administrators were couple friends, included Leilana Hermiasih. It’s now continued by Rega Ayundya Putri.
In this project, Timoteus Anggawan Kusno explores the idea in various shapes and media. Started from his works and also simple stuffs you can see around in your daily life.
This exhibition shows series of works which visually starts representing the idea of What’s Good Today? Simple works are arranged to build the intimacy and warmth, a positive atmosphere and intimate optimism. It is just like a nice chat while drinking a cup of coffee with an old friend.
This exhibition doesn’t focus on the partial and technical detail of photography. Visual series of photography is an element of this art work to create an atmosphere. Its aim is how to feel the series of works in a mood and energy holistically.
