Our first ever showcase abroad. It was held in Design Festa Gallery, Harajuku last 18th-20th March. Here's a (very late) promotional item.
Established in 2013, The 1984 is a Jakarta based creative consultant, creating brand experience mostly for small to medium enterprises. Many of our works are related to niche products in Indonesia, allowing us to do experiments and solve problems from interesting angles.
RE-IMAGINING AN ARCHIPELAGO
The exhibition ‘Re-imagining An Archipelago’ is our own loose translation of The 1984’s homeland, Indonesia. Using mostly collage technique to transform existing images of pre-war environment, we re-imagine what it feels like to discover the enchanting tribes and remote places in the region.
Here at The 1984 and Jalan Kenangan, we are all huuuge fans of Sekarputi Sidhiawati's ceramic brand, Derau. So it was an absolute delight to have her do workshop at our place.
The workshop was split in two sessions. In the first meeting, you got to learn how to handbuild. Then on the second meeting, the handbuilt potteries were already fired into biscuits where participant learnt to glaze on it. Glazing is my favorite part, because once they are fired again to final product, you'll get unexpected color results.
And here it is, the final results after second firing...
So many sad and heartfelt moments lately, actually. I don't even have the energy to write about it so in the mean time please enjoy this older post I have prepared quite some time ago about our Binatang Ciro prints for Binatang Press
Binatang Ciro is the first limited edition print that we tested on Awagami paper. We offered this to first five commenters on one of Binatang Press' instagram feed.
The image is a pattern of on of our Shihtzus, Ciro, shot from above.
The unexpected happened. Last week I just lost one of my pack member, Andro a.k.a Jamban but in the mean time we have another addition to the family, Beyonce (more pics of her later). I am still very heartbroken, confused and disoriented since I always feel that I am one of the pack too, it feels like there is a missing piece. Honestly I don't really know what to write right now, so in the mean time please enjoy these pictures which I took of the Shihtzu pack earlier this year.
Days of Canonet QL17 and excessive Vashti Bunyan on my ipod.
