On the past one year, we have been sleeping away throughout the pandemic. As the time runs fast, it gets more difficult to detect the implications of changes that we have occurred. The 4.0 revolution that we haven’t fully understand has rapidly changed into 4.5 revolution and even followed by 5.0 revolution in a fast and massive way. Humans are not only hacking data networks in the form of IoT, AI to run the power of the world. Their vision to hacks their own self in the form of Synthetic Biology leads the human to be connected biologically with network and machine. We are also faced with virtual rooms that all of a sudden become the global fast track to rule the world – take Google, Microsoft, and Amazon for the example. Leaders of large capital in a small scale also starting to show up in the social media with their creative contents.

The social live that we live in has been hacked in such a way, unconsciously makes us forget about the process and the perpetrator. On the other hand, the geopolitical map of the world is stretching sharply. The emergence of an axis of economic power in Asia with the revival of the modern silk route through the Belt and Road Initiative. The awareness of oceanic countries and mineral owners is vital to increase their bargaining power. Not to mention the climate change issues and the survival of humankind has become a global challenge in the innovation map. The visual exposure of the planet Mars until the New Horizon expedition succeeded in approaching Pluto, showing that the imagination of land tenure of the human population continues to be activated. New innovations are also sparked in order to maintain the survival of our planet (planet survival). The chaos of change that occurs, puts us as creative producers in an empty space to join all together or fall off into change.

Age and time moves rapidly, changing rules by rules that we have been applied. A lot of new things come and go in our life without us know nor understand it. Huge changes need a medium in order to work well. New innovations are needed to be a bridge over the age and time. Every discipline has a responsibility to fulfill the new spaces that are still out of touch and difficult to understand by the current happenings. The INACADE 2021 “New Space” artistic event invites creative producers, both design and other visual arts to explore all together in creating, providing new innovation and offers that were unthinkable from the conceptual, medium development, and further as a solution to the new era.

“New Space” is a new offer of creative discourse in exploring and developing conventional artistic mediums, throughout the upcoming possibilities in the new uncharted era. Empty spaces for Neo avangardism to explore, to appear, and to present various artistic ideas in order to fill in the imaginative puzzle of the global community, built by local wisdom nor creative ideas that are truly new, run unlimitedly with no boundaries.
