Numpang Lewat series

A set of 4 short audio diary entries recording the sounds of uneven patterns of mobility in Kampung Dadap, Tangerang and its’ surrounds. Numpang Lewat is an Indonesian phrase meaning passing through, and these audio snapshots show the circulation of people, objects and language that pass through Kampung Dadap with varying levels of speed and ease.

This fishing neighbourhood is at once peripheral to and highly integrated within circuits of globalisation, isolated by terrible road access as it is bypassed by toll roads leading to the neighbouring international airport, but integrated through the mobility of its residents, many of whom become migrant workers to supplement their traditional livelihoods.
