Fall-Winter 16/17: The New East Indies

Fall-Winter 16/17: The New East Indies

{Foreword}

Perhaps I am writing a utopian story in contrast to the hell most of us are facing. Yet I have personally experienced that, in times of chaos and insanity, imagining a paradise can accomplish more constructive wonders than criticizing our reality can. Allow me to share a story about a buoy that had saved me from drowning. At times when this soul was on the verge of drowning, I deliberately immersed myself in colorful emotions and surreal thinking, such that I could maintain the courage to envision what was broken within my world and could transform every one of my mistakes into my strength. Of course, I have no intention on dragging you into a rational discussion. Without any drugs or traditional medicine, I am inviting you to join me on a subliminal and explosive ride, because I believe that an intimate connection between us humans and our planet is critical at this point. My concern lies in how many of my thoughts you can digest, for I often conceal evidences within my stories through ambiguous symbols in order to protect my own fragility. Without criticizing present conditions and without forcing my perspectives onto anyone, I try wholeheartedly to share a practical and honest frame of mind. 

Tessitura

Finally, I found the courage to present my conceptual thoughts on ‘The New East Indies’, which I had been contemplating for a long time. These thoughts represent a way of seeing various aspects of social orders and cultural values, which I then compiled into a series of letters. In the beginning, the use of the word ‘East Indies’ was heavily challenged by several of my colleagues, since this word reminded them of the colonialist period which had been endured by my own people. Inherently, the term ‘East Indies’ originated from the geographical location of the Indonesian archipelago. Since the Middle Ages, this archipelago, situated east of the Indian Ocean, had been recognized by the Western World as a tropical haven, rich in various natural resources and decadent cultures. Today, this richness is still abundant in these islands. How far mankind has manifested free thinking towards making use of this richness is the core of several assessments which I will recount. The attribute of the word ‘New’ which I added here, illustrates a progressive viewpoint about the modern human capacity for cultivating his earth, celebrating his individuality, as well as appreciating his peers. A point of view which describes the obtainable potential if each individual within a certain generation anchors on empathy, intuition, and noble intention as he projects himself onto the vast world. A point of view which fortifies self-confidence.

Filogenesis

Filogenesis

All of these assessments are grouped into specific topics and are written in an intimate language, because in truth I wish to transform these papers into a series of time capsules for my future heirs. To me, freedom of and expression is a long journey, in spite of the fact that the imperialist era has long gone by. My objective is to share a few notes on a thought process which can still be developed toward reaching a better civilization, because it is through this winding process that I personally continue to gain inspirations on improving myself. Slices of these introspections were extracted from history and the lives of my ancestors, but I portray these through a raw and simple descriptions. This is a legacy that I inherited, and it is the time for me to pass on this gift to the next generation. 

Jakarta 2016,
Melissa Sunjaya

The Sound of Dawn: The Last of Originals Edition

Jantan & Betina Originals Edition

The Sound of Dawn: Jantan & Betina Originals Edition

Love opens our hearts and minds
to unlimited possibilities

Love is the only reason
for our existence

Love is a universal gift
that does not choose sides

Love is my unconditional gift
to you

Every life form begins with love. As the first strokes of the sun’s rays fill every inch of space with cosmic kindness, darkness slowly bids farewell. Sleeping creatures start to wake, absorbing energy and transferring warmth to one another, making the earth beneath happier. Like a conductor who is about to lead a grand symphony, a shiny black cockerel raises itself onto a fence, summoning others to join his sunrise orchestra. Hummingbirds set the opening tune, and daisies dance the cha-cha, while leaves riding on a morning breeze sing a soothing ballad.

489th Jakarta

Happy Birthday Jakarta!

Happy Birthday Jakarta!

“Jakarta is not London, Paris, New York or any other great city. Despite its pollution and bumper-to-bumper traffic, living in Jakarta is about taking chances, being close to family, and having true friends. It is a melting pot where you will find many inspiring minds and undiscovered talent. Appearances are often deceiving. This is definitely the case with a chaotic city like Jakarta, but once you delve into its inner beauty you realize that this is a place brimming with vitality and an abundance of untapped creative energy.” –Melissa Sunjaya-

Happy Birthday to our beloved Jakarta!

Luna Tote

Terbit – Luna Tote

In the spirit of impressionism, the artist re-visited her prose and created a series of modern visual interpretations. Through several experiments with Chinese ink, her brush strokes convey a bold sense of vigor and innocence. The final impressions become a parody to wood-block printing – an old-school printing technique where imperfections may offer a unique beauty.
