Widjaja traced his father’s handwriting of the bilingual Rivers and lakes poems on one side of the accordion book, and on the verso, made stone-like marks.  Notions of home, homeland and history, through the lenses of Chinese and Indonesian semantics, may be read into the geographical features and elements that make up the poems. In the installation, the text may appear asemic as it is seen as a reflection. Extending the idea of psychological territories, the stone-like markings were created without material stones.
