Another Asia I

Wahyudi Rahardjo

SKY WORKER (2005)

It will be forty-three stories high, the newest skyscraper in Jakarta. The hardhats work at a height of 150 meters, where they have to deal with strong winds and blazing sun. This flagship of the new Jakarta is being built primarily by young men from the provinces. They are drawn to the capital city to earn money for their families. From this height SKY WORKER (2005) shows them looking down every day on the hectic city; they have to keep up with its pace. Safety instructions often go by the board. Even safety belts are frequently enough ignored. Although no one has died in the construction of this skyscraper yet, several workers fell to their death during the construction of the previous one.
