Artist Statement:


    The House of Natural Fiber (HONF) was founded in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, in 1999 as a new media art laboratory. Yogyakarta is a unique and autonomous city that is well known for its cultural and historical heritage and as one of the main centers of higher education in Indonesia. HONF was one of a number of reactions of unsatisfied young people in facing an uncertain future with the political and economic restructuring after the restoration of civil society.

    HONF brings together local artists (ranging from digital musicians and graphic designers to computer programmers, scientists and engineers) to use new technologies and knowledge to solve local problems in creative and culturally relevant ways. HONF is home to digital artists, activists, computer programmers, and scientists. The mission of HONF is to educate local Indonesians in using new technologies while developing partnerships to come up with creative solutions to existing social problems.
