Astrologi


“Kamu percaya astrologi?”

“Tidak. Kamu?”

“Aku percaya. Mungkin karena kita lahir pada tanggal dan bulan yang sama. Ketika bintang di langit membentuk rasi yang sama. Dan bumi berada pada titik yang sama. Dan alam menunjukkan gejala yang sama. Dan semesta dipengaruhi fenomena yang sama. Kita terlalu sama. Karenanya kita tak bisa bersama. Kamu mengerti?” 

“Tidak. Aku tidak percaya ramalan bintang.”

“Kamu tidak mengerti. Ini hukum sebab akibat yang paling sederhana"

"Kita, tidak sederhana."

1994, revisited

I have a very cool job as a staff assistant of an academic journal. One of my very cool tasks is to archive the back issues of the journal, and when I said back issues I mean baaaaack like 1989-back. Yea, I have to scan every issue of the journal published from 1989 to 2012, from the first issue to the last one. So, hours of dedication to my work- read: scanning hundreds or maybe thousands pages of the journals- that I've spent trigger the genius inside me- read: the boredom inside me- to invent these artsy oh so artsy errr... can I say artworks? I call this series as "1994, revisited". Imagine, somewhere in 1994, somebody wrote the article wholeheartedly and years after that somebody- read: me- is reading it- read: scanning it- wholeheartedly.
