Kristalisasi

LB_BAG_1702_10_800x1200

Kohesi

This Dry Season Collection 2017 relates to my second letter, titled ‘Nexus’. My essay employed the set theory in mathematics to visualize social and emotional connections between humans. The objective was to propose several perspectives in resolving communication conflicts within organization consisting of two or more individuals.

LB_BAG_1701_19_734x1200

Kristalisasi: Architect Bag – Red Letter

I used the set theory, formulated by Georg Cantor, to recount several experiences in defining personal identity, the connections between humans, and an organization:

‘Kristalisasi’ – Union of 2 sets or more: A process to unify of several different opinions to conclude in one objective and to come up with a better condition. In unity, humans will see better, think better, and act better.

LB_BAG_1702_19_800x1200

Kohesi: Feliz Tote – Green Grass

‘Kohesi’ – Complement of 2 sets or more: A process to view diversity as a complement to one’s character and a method to reach a more solid phase. When our differences are set aside, I comprehend that all humans are equal. We all love freedom, believe in tenacity, and despise unfairness.

Letter 02: Nexus

SURAT2_COVER_1240x884

Aku bernafas, bergerak, dan berhasrat di suatu dunia bercadar yang takut disentuh.

Ada yang sukar diungkapkan; yang dilarang untuk diseksama; dan sekarang semakin banyak lagi yang tidak bisa dirasakan. Sistem yang mengelilingiku telah dirancang jauh sebelum aku terwujud dalam janin. Sistem ini tidak lagi berfungsi dengan baik untuk melindungiku. Seperti jaringan yang padat, sistem ini didirikan untuk menjaga keseimbangan di antara sesamaku. kini jaringan sistem ini mencabuti segala bentuk sensori dari rasa kemanusiaanku, dan merekayasanya dengan personalisasi lain.

–Melissa Sunjaya, Jakarta 2017


Curatorial Statement

The New East Indies presents an anthology of literature and artworks by Melissa Sunjaya, which examine the present state of Indonesian civilization and its potential future transformation. Traditionally, civilization has been interpreted through a distinct methodology based on human tendencies in viewing various problems and solutions through emotions, language, culture, art and science.

The digital era has opened the door to a world without limits, where each individual is able to access a seemingly endless assortment of information rapidly from this secondary cyber-universe. Concurrently, advances in transportation technology have made it possible to travel thousands of miles in a single day. The two sectors have greatly accelerated the progress of our civilization. Yet one thing remains certain: there are discernible tradeoffs occurring alongside our technological advances. This acceleration has diminished our connection to the natural world and cultivated a civilization which produces pollution in abundance.

The second letter from The New East Indies studies the essence of touch in human connection. The cultural shifts during this robotic era have caused an intricate connectivity and some communication conflicts, leaving touch and empathy as an unfamiliar and rare language. The essayist recounted her personal experiences in discovering harmony between heterogeneity in her surroundings.

Tari Pulsar: 3/3


LB_FW1617_ALL_08_1200x802

“… The dance between the earth and mankind was a fairy tale of love with a musical composition named ‘Fuga’ where all of the notes were stacking over, chasing, and calling on each other. This transcendental melody escorted a messed-up condition which was extremely concrete and unsweetened. Through these notes, my ears perceived a call to dismantle the robe of romanticism which often pictured a perfection so hard to attain in this age–a summons so my tomorrow could yield a plate of magical tones. Through the telescope of ‘Fuga’, my soul captured an authentic personality which no longer wears the veil of mere beauty.

LB_FW1617_1626TS_02_1200x802

…For as long as this pulsar dance continued to pulsate, I had to carefully examine the chronology of events in the shape of a dynamic rotation to conclude thousands of new concepts presenting many probabilities capable of penetrating through all directions. When this dynamic rotation came to an end, a bunch of connections would cross each other into knots. During this tangled fiasco, all sorts of seeds forming new unity were possible. Horrible events would disappear from memory and history would only speak of an amazing contemporary artwork. This evaluation is my personal method in formulating precise problem solving. I related this method to ‘Deviasi’ movement in a war strategy–a mindset dispersing in all directions to gain a noble vision.” –Excerpt from Surat No. 1, Melissa Sunjaya.

Nesting Place

 

LB_FW1617_HOME_1625RS_07_1200x800Hi, I’m Fani.

LB_FW1617_HOME_1624YS_07_1200x800

Since I started working in Tulisan, I have spent numerous hours discussing projects in Melissa’s own house which also served as her art studio. She treats her Tulisan team in kinship. We would be having breakfast, lunch and coffees together like a family. Among this tight working team, we would share many touches of laughter while tackling deadlines.

LB_FW1617_HOME_05_02_1200x800

LB_FW1617_HOME_05_01_1200x800I rent a 4×5 square meter urban room in South Jakarta, not far from my office. It is a simple space with tiny ventilation panels giving it a descent natural light source. I often wonder how to redecorate this space without spending an excessive budget and a huge effort.LB_FW1617_HOME_1625RS_012_1200x800

LB_FW1617_HOME_1625RS_015_1200x800

One rainy afternoon as Melissa was working on her household responsibilities, I asked her for some tips on decorating rooms. So she took me to see her room. To my surprise, her bedroom was humble, yet warm and cozy. She loves spending time at home, and especially a lot of ‘me time’ in this room for reading, writing, and drinking tea.

Melissa suggested me to redecorate my room with a limited colour palette of white and grey, making the creative process easier and giving a lasting satisfaction. The neutral tones made the room more spacious and friendly for the soul. Her bedroom was overall covered in neutral coloured linens, then vibrantly accented with Tulisan’s home collections.

I discovered a couple of unique ideas for my own space. As an example, the tea towel could be used as an interchangeable wall decoration and as a seat cover. The car organizer could also be hanged on the wall to organize tissue, books, and notes.

I felt inspired that day because her decorating tips were easy to apply. A pleasant atmosphere doesn’t have to be expensive.

I hope you have a great day,

Jane says
I’ve never been in love
I don’t know what it is
Only knows if someone wants her
I want them if they want me
I only know they want me

Jane Sees
there are three shades
of the story
yours, mine, and her view
Everything takes its turn
in a circular motion
Jane sees the bright side
