"Field Experiments"

This is ill. They sent these 3 guys to Bali to make art.

The project resulted in a collection of more than 100 conceptual works that challenge the traditional notion of the souvenir. In Bali (like many other travel destinations) the souvenir is often associated with the degradation of authentic local art and craft as more and more artists and makers expend their energy to creating these commercial objects. Field Experiments Indonesia considers the souvenir with new optimism. By working directly with the local craft communities, without middlemen, and by creating a collection of objects informed by observation of daily Balinese life, the first project explored how objects can become deeply infused with a culture and their people.
