Project WayGo was started in summer 2007, as school assignment in which the topic was how to revitalize Sundanese culture in modern world. One of the vivid “culture representation” of the Sundanese people was “wayang golek”.
This tradition has been passed over generations, but as time goes by it suffers a lot of pressure which caused it no longer considered either as part of the culture, nor the entertainment.
Preliminary research indicated about ninety seven percent (97%) children aged seven to twelve had no recognition to golek either in substance, nor general knowledge.
WayGo was designed as tools for introducing golek puppet for children. It was expected, with this tools, they would obtain better understanding about Indonesian local culture.
The design process
Within design process, strategic steps were set to adjust characteristic, system, and visual appearance. Golek is strongly influenced with its unique semiotics.
Every visual aspects have their own meaning. Red color on Cepot’s face (one of golek’s famous character), meant aggressive and angry character.
WayGo’s design methods were derived as compromise phase, visual simplification, and trend fusion.
Compromise phase is needed to define what visual aspects will be carried over, what systems should be developed, and what semiotics would be taken into new design.
Visual simplification was a phase in reducing visual complexity within traditional golek puppet.
Main purpose of this simplification was to let children had better understanding, without being too distracted by its visual complexity.
Trend fusion was done by melting current trends with traditional values lied within golek.
Based on research, the most popular golek’s character should be Cepot, for sixty four percent (64%). Gatotkaca came second with twenty two percent (22%).
Within this case, Gatotkaca was developed further, as he represents a hero (which most likely kids would love so much). He is pretty much considered as Superman in traditional golek stories.
Compromise phase within this character was done by still representing green color in his face.
His heroic character was also being supported by giving him a complete set of weapons, spear with integrated shield and a bazooka-arm full with arsenals.
Visual simplification reduced ornaments in his face. As this would also simplifies production process. Simplification would give children better recognition for this character.
Trend fusion by joining kids trend now who really love heroic character. As well as Gatotkaca, weapon additions and ability to be played exactly as golek puppet were implementation of this tools.
Physical features of this “toy” are:
- Could be operated as action figure, golek puppet, and diorama ;
- Made from safe colored polypropylene ;
- Could be re-assembled easily, with ball-joints for free and better movements ;
- Used as educational toys, as well as interactive culture media.
WayGo project could be widely developed, and not only ends as just a product. Games apps, and other visual campaigns could also be made as a supportive actions for culture revitalization purpose.
