Using as a point of departure the Indonesian national motto of "Bhinneka Tunggal Ika" or "Unity in Diversity," Teler delves the essence of diversity - (kebhinekaan)
Maintaining there is no truth in dualism, the artists sees differences in color, ideology and within clans as the source of conflict. It is the artist's contention that conflicts between going into or out of self, between soft and hard, between goodness and evil, fear and bravery can be harmonized through the application of tolerance and the acceptance of diversity as the essence of life.Terrorance Tolerism
