Eddi Prabandono is an artist who involves design, planning, and construction in creating his large-scale pieces. He does not work on his pieces alone. Just like in construction projects, Eddi Prabandono involves many workers: to create designs and even work plans that need [careful] calculation. However, his pieces does not turn into merely structural things, because of the way he incorporated the evolution of languages of expressions in creating them.
