Splash and Burn is an awareness campaign responding creatively to unregulated farming practices of Palm Oil in Indonesia. Tackling issues such as the transboundary haze, Deforestation, Human and Animal displacement; murals/sculptures and interventions have been appearing throughout cities and the vast natural landscape of Sumatra. The Campaign is collaborating with a number of local and international NGOs including London based charity SOS and Indonesian Based NGO OIC. The project is initiated by Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic, who throughout the last two years has been actively researching the issue, visiting and scouting locations and connecting with experts and specialists in the field.

The project was funded by the release of ‘Splash and Burn’, a limited edition print which sold generating the full independent funding. Since February, international artists have been generously donating their time and creativity to the cause, arriving in secret to execute works.

Conflict palm oil is a longstanding controversial issue that receives much media attention in peak moments of crisis, but very little in the months between the burning seasons. With global consumption increasing beyond the need to conserve our impact on our environment and communities, Ernest aims to introduce a new perspective to the conversation on Palm Oil. Using art as a tool, he suggests bridging the gap between the corruption surrounding the industry and the wider consciousness of the global consumer. Through a number of unique art projects Splash and Burn offers a creative platform for Organisations and NGOs fighting for positive change.

Jakarta, Indonesia based graphic retoucher Aditya Aryanto tried visualizing some animals in different forms, which he then called Anicube or Animal Cube. He is interested in the cubical shape and trying to change some animal forms into cubes.

Aryanto’s latest series is a collection of real life animals reconfigured looked more like cubic creations from Minecraft. The liquified curves and inorganic lines are somehow strangely realistic. The series, called Minecraft in Real Life or Anicube, covers everything from highland cows to rabbits.

Chicago-based photographer, film-maker, music producer and co-founder of the band Ladytron, Reuben Wu captures the unexpected sight of molten sulphur flowing from an Indonesian volcano.

In my visual work, he is driven not just by the urge to create imagery,
but by a desire to explore new places as if they were unknown territory,
constantly open to serendipity and with an eye for the unnoticed and the hidden.

“Photographs, like music, can create an echo of a time and a place.
To me, my images are more than pictures. They are fragments of
memory and imagination.” Reuben Wu

RIP Typewriters

 RIP Typewriters rip typewrtiters last typwriter

This seems hard to believe, but the word is the last typewriter manufacturer is closing its doors. After a steady decline in orders, Godrej and Boyce in India is shutting down. Apparently there are not enough young hipsters “who are drawn by the nostalgia and romantic image attached to the now-bygone technology” to keep the orders flowing. You think that there would be enough demand to keep at least one manufacturer open, but apparently not. However, there are murmurs of manufacturers remaining in China, Japan, and Indonesia…
