Have you ever strolled around your neighborhood, observed daily life in your area, and thought this is our local culture? If you have, you might've noticed that something doesn't have to be old, folkish, and traditional to be called culture. It's basically just repeated daily lifestyle!
This seems to be what Giri Putra had in mind when he created Budaya Visual, which means 'visual culture' in Indonesian. The 26-year-old creator lives in Indonesia, where his surroundings give him plenty of creative burst. In his Assemblr account, he recreates everything he considers local Indonesian culture, ranging from traditional dance attribute to cooking tools and street food stands.
Interestingly, according to Giri, at first the project was created just for fun. "I simply wanted to create a thematic account. But then I got really invested on it!" he said. Now he's taking it further as a platform to educate people about Indonesian culture. He already made an Instagram account and website for it, where he tells stories and trivia about all the stuffs he has made available in 3D and AR.
As for his plans, he's currently developing a mascot for the project. Then, when he has created enough contents, "I'll probably compile it into a booklet, which could be viewed in AR, of course". Sounds exciting!
