It was on aSaturday afternon that one of my riends notified me that there will be a Jember Fashion Carnaval (JFC) in one of the fun walk events atParkir Timur Senayan on Sunday morning.

When The Music Stops Playing

Thoughts And Memoir

tumblr_nf1mlzkubu1snvrhjo1_500When the music stops playing, it seems like the world had lost its rhythm, and time had stopped, and then things hover around you. Then the deafening silence takes over, and everything is nothing but melancholic. And in the midst, you hover lifelessly; lost and dead.

Relax and Succeed

960 Relax and Succeed - Ikigai The reason to get up in the morningEven though they may not know the concept abstractly, when you listen to people discuss their work complaints they will always focus on where they can feel that their Ikigai has lost balance. The term is composed by compounding two ideas: iki which is to be alive; and kai, which is the worthwhile result of your being, otherwise stated as your reason for being, your motivation, or the meaning to your existence. Your raison d’etre. I’m sure you can feel the pull of that sensation just reading about it.

One way to help define Ikigai in your life is that it will not change in good times or in bad. Someone who loves firefighting will love it as much in the firehall as they will at a fire. A true writer will enjoy the research for their new book as much as they enjoy the writing of it. And…

Video of the modernist city

Architecture Here and There

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 9.51.25 AM.png Screenshot from “Spacial Bodies,” by AUJIK, from Kuriositas.

Here, courtesy of the website Kuriositas, is the city of modern architecture’s secret desire. The video of this imagined place is called “Spacial Bodies,” by AUJIK.  As described by Kuriositas, it “depicts the urban landscape and architectural bodies as an autonomous living and self-replicating organism. Domesticated and cultivated only by its own nature. A vast concrete vegetation, oscillating between order and chaos.” In short, it is the intended consequence of intercourse among the architectural theories of Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, Moshe Safdie, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Rem Koolhaas and who knows what else. Filmed in Osaka, Japan. Here, residents every day get to experience the untamed order of the wild. Lucky them! If the image above already raises the hairs on your neck, go ahead and watch the video. It is architecture on LSD. Of course, this is…
