Aside from becoming a rehabilitation tool through artistic practice, PAPs is also an attempt at generating a new understanding of the Indonesian art discourse; pointing at the fact that “the attraction lies not only in the final artwork, but mores in the respect towards the backdrop and process of collaboration to restructure a new energy towards change in life through art.”
