Sister City Periscopes

This is a concept of a public space (train station) installation that meant to be built in three different cities around the world; Jakarta, Berlin, and Los Angeles. The title is "Sister City Telescopes".







Quote:
To develop itself, a city needs optimism. And together with every other cities, it needs reflections and experience sharing, especially with greater ones. One way to learn, cooperate, and sharing each other's experience is through Sister Cities (or Twin Towns) concept.

There are many cities in the world that are 'sisters' (or 'twins') to Jakarta, but Berlin in Germany and Los Angeles in USA are very interesting, for they are also 'sisters' to each other.

Talking about reflection, Berlin and Los Angeles, are surely good for Jakarta to reflect itself to; to see the differences of each other, to learn from them, to know them better. We want to know how they manage their city, how they live their life, how the people act as citizens, their pasts, their effort to build their great cities.

This is a concept of an instalation whose function is to allow the people of Jakarta, on their daily life, to demonstratively "take a peek" at people's daily life in developed cities in other part of the world; the Sisters of Berlin and Los Angeles.

It is a simulation of a set of periscopes that thrusts straight lines into the earth between three Sister Cities; two pieces of periscopes in each city of Jakarta, Berlin, and Los Angeles pointing towards each other. Then with simple technologies, it will allow people in those three cities to look and see and interact with each other from the other part of the globe.
