53 Lives Lost

KRI Nanggala (402), also known as Nanggala II, was one of two Cakra-class Type 209/1300 diesel-electric attack submarines of the Indonesian Navy. In a tragic incident on April 2021, the vessel sank in the Bali Sea, and all 53 personnel aboard passed away.


‘53’ is an homage to the 53 crew members who lost their lives onboard KRI Nanggala 402. This piece is a 53-second animation, consisting of 53-layers of sound. The perfect loop symbolizes the never-ending cycle of life. Their spirits will never be forgotten. By collecting this NFT, you will be contributing to the 53 families of the 53 victims
