Wisnu Wisdantio who usually also called Wawies is an Architect who also a research enthusiast towards science, history, social, culture, ecology, local knowledge, environmental issues, and how they are connected to each other. Brought him to have concerns on emphasizing that connections into his designs since he was studying at the Architecture Study Program – Atma Jaya University Yogyakarta until nowadays within his works as an Architect, Urban Designer, and planning analyst at a design and engineering firm in Yogyakarta – Indonesia.
His endless research enthusiasm also drives him to have an interest in traveling and self-learning photography autodidactically as part of a research process and knowledge transfer. Eventually, it led “Wawies” to develop his early works when joined www.landscapeindonesia.com in 2010, an open online platform to archive the travelers’ notes when exploring Indonesia. He accomplished several works as a researcher and travel writer on several Travel E-books collaboration projects that were organized and self-published by www.landscapeindonesia.com.
His works expand widely after taking part in a long-term cross-disciplinary project called “Jogja River Project” that was organized by Lifepatch in 2012, a community-based organization working in the creative and appropriate application in the field of art, science, and technology. Within that project, he got an opportunity to explore creative visual documentation methods to support a research process through the development of 360-degree photo documentation techniques and its DIY Panohead Tool. Since then, Lifepatch becomes his platform for most of his works lately while maintaining his daily routine of working as an Architect and Urban planner.
Nowadays, Wisnu or “Wawies” has developed various experiments and works, ranging from the exploration of various exhibition designs, exploring the utilization of visual documentation as part of a research process and a medium for transfer knowledge, develop various interactive works based on scientific interpretation and research on site-specific projects, as well as explore any possibilities to bring architecture and urban design as part of various cross-disciplinary activities and community conversations.
