The projects so far...
# Our Ongoing Cases (Continuous)
- "The Diary of The Secret Places"
When we exhibit "The Diary of The Secret Places", the audience would have access to various means of posting their comments and thoughts relating to their chosen photographs.
This project is our most exhibited one, and is continuously expanding, for we constantly take pictures of spaces we find interesting (and for some divine reason we frequently end up in such spots).
- “The Map”
In one occasion the audience were asked to show where they were before coming to the exhibition, and where they are going after, by sticking colored dots (orange indicating the spots ‘before’, and yellow indicating the spots ‘after’). In another case, we ask the audience to show a few spots on the map, sites where they have experienced intense emotions; like love, anger, fear, happiness, sadness, etc (each emotion indicated by different coloured sticky dots).
For the Open Studio in Jogjakarta, which was a presentation on the process and progress of the "We're OK, we're in Jogja" project (for the Artists in Residence Program of Ruang Mes 56, Jogjakarta), a giant map of Jogjakarta was provided for the interactive map installation. On this one, visitors were asked to respond to the map by pointing out where they usually go to see live music shows and art events, their favourite hang-out spots, where they work or go to school, and where they live in Jogja.
Beside resulting in a number of attractive looking super sized maps, filled with jellybeans coloured dots and pointers, the map installation pieces have also provided quite compelling datas on contemporary urban life, particularly in getting to know various sites from different perspectives.
- The Secret Agents Photo Album
The Secret Agents photo album is a collection of photographs taken by us or by our friends (with direction from us), of us posing our "Secret Agents" - like poses. We find photographs that have two people posing like in still photos for films very interesting, so we keep making those of ourselves.
Here's some of the photos from the collection so far....
- Project Kost
- The Secret Agents Hotel Series
This is a series of photos of us taken in hotel rooms. We are both fascinated by hotel rooms. The older the hotel, the more interesting their rooms are. And we are collecting photographs of hotel rooms, wherever they are.
# Under Investigation (To be continued)
- "Midnight Table Talks"
The first "Midnight Table Talks" is a program on RuRuShop Radio (the world's first on-line contemporary art radio station, produced by ruangrupa, the reputable Jakarta based artists' initiative), hosted by The Secret Agents with guests. The topics are mostly art - music - films, and the connections between them. The talking parts are interspersed with the most excellent tunes.
"Midnight Table Talks" is also a video project, taping a series of conversations between The Secret Agents and friends from all kinds of backgrounds. The first one, which is still in production, features the founders of Cobra Magazine: Anggun Priambodo (video artist - film director) and Harlan Boer (musician - poet - writer).
