It’s a random post

Hey y’all, it’s been a while I know. Last week we submitted all our work however second year isn’t officially done yet, well for me anyway. The exhibition design class is still running till mid November and what we’ve been doing these past few days is having a series of intense workshops preparing the RMIT comm design book. The book is in collaboration with the honours students who are also having an exhibition of their own. Ddn’t get to take much photos but I figured I’d fill this post with some shots of my last two uni projects plus the prototype zines we’re working on for the grad year event.

Miniature madness

You know how it’s a hobby for some people to keep a collection of pointless things like stamps, stickers and rubber wrist bands? As soon as I saw Stéphanie Kilgast’s mini food art I rediscovered my love for collecting miniature objects. As a kid I spent an unreasonable amount of time collecting these things (and I still do!) I never realized till now. Thanks to Stephanie, I’m inspired to buy Fimo and try out some miniature food art. This shall be a great way to brush up on my dodgy crafting skills. You should definitely visit her website, blog and store here. Looking through the house I dug up a few shots of my mini collection…

White walls

Today’s exhibition design class was probably the best class I’ve ever had in uni so far. Cue the blank walls and endless rolls of vinyl, we finally get to work with color, shape and all the elements you can think of on a large scale! The aim of today is to challenge our train of thought regarding the possibility of how an exhibition space can be perceived and experienced by not only our audience, but ultimately ourselves. So the theme of today was to present colour as a vehicle for meaning and inspiration within an exhibition setting. Working collaboratively as a class, we played around with vinyl within the confines of the boring media and communication staff area. These first few photos were one of the walls we got to decorate.

This second wall was the one I was mainly working on with a few classmates, you could probably already tell that we were inspired by Matisse. Fortunately for the staff they’re gonna have to cope with our crazy creations for a while, it might be a bit too much to take in but at least the walls aren’t as boring as they were before!

A right-brainer by day and occasional blogger by night, you've landed on a place where I document life in the creative field and endless travels with friends and family

Design had evolved naturally, as a passion and a lifestyle beginning at an early age when I made trips back to the motherland, Indonesia, I experienced the surroundings and the lifestyle that was vastly different from what I was used to. I found myself passing by villages where children made their own toys with whatever was left around them; scrap metal, bits of cloth, banana leaves, and even cigarette butts. Despite this, the children were happy and proud with anything they created.

This image struck me and forever inspires me to contribute my skills to places that need it the most. Design helps me make decisions, while art helps me take risks. Both areas reward me with opportunities to create something impactful and everlasting!
