W CHRISTIAWAN [INDONESIA] DOTTED MAP
Action Poetry is unusual activity made up from the unsual world. It could be read as multi-interpretable text. Thereby, it takes the risk of becoming "something" or "nothing at all" For me performance art is a, 'Action Poetry', "can be viewed as one of contemporary arts belonging to non-representational genre. It does not only come up from subjective conciousness as ideological response towards socio-cultural problems, but also a manifestation of the artist's interior self-exploration

MIMI FADMI [INDONESIA] FLOWERY ART
Performance Art is the extension of the self. It helps me to articulate all the tacit, thoughts and feelings including critical thought.

DYLAN MUHAMMADI CHRISTIAWAN [INDONESIA] FIRST PERSON SHOOTER
Until this day there has been a big world wide pandemic. Because of the Virus named COVID-19's attack on the world. Every country in the world is in crisis, and everybody suffers the impacts of this pandemic. As a young man in this country, I and all my friends love playing video games. Every teen and young man in Indonesia loves playing this game.
So, for this perfomance art, I will make myself the Dr. Plague with the Shotgun, and exterminate the corona virus like on the FPS (First Person Shooter) game. And I will make the camera look like the game. I will make a corona viruses-like target, and when I shoot them with the airsoft gun there will be splash. The splash I will made from slime. And I will put the target in many places at the perfomance location.
At the and I will kills the corona kings and get the treasure.
