Compared with the videos, Melati’s photography seems to be a silent termination of her performance actions and processes. When all emotions are frozen on the surface of the photos, it forms an atmosphere within and without the images. Her recent photography "Tomorrow, As Purposed" series, presents the spirit of intense confrontation and personal anxiety with the dynamic and gestures of body, and "Window" series extends the relationship between "physical body" / "cultural body" to the "outer" / "inner", the main "Self" finalizes a distinction out of the fear and resistance to "the Constitutive Other".
