Panjat pinang…

This Google Doodle depicts panjat pinang, a game traditionally played during Independence Day holiday in Indonesia every 17th of August. A number of players would try and climb a skinned and heavily greased pole to grab prizes hung on the top. For physically heavier (e.g. refrigerators, motorcycles) or more fragile (e.g. iPads, BlackBerrys) items, a placeholder board is usually hung instead.

This game emphasizes strength, agility, and above all, teamwork. To reach the top of the tall tree, the players would usually try and form a human tower. It is quite a spectacle to watch, especially with all the slippery grease.

Happy Independence Day to all Indonesians! Dirgahayu Indonesia! Merdekaaaaaaa!!!!! 🙂

Kamen Gatotkaca

Muscles of steel wire, bones of iron

I came across this beauty at the JAKARTA 32°C art exhibition, held at Jakarta National Gallery. Gatotkaca has always been my favorite wayang character, and somebody made this re-imagined version! It was built using paper pulp and carton, by the way.

What’s next? A Kamen Rider-esque TV serial?

Gray obsession…

Pictured above is the one color that represents all modern art, according to artist Joshua T. Nimoy (a relative of Spock? 😛 ). He came to this conclusion after analyzing and calculating the average color of – get this – 26 thousand modern works of art.

If art is an imitation of life, what could be the inspiration for this brownish-gray color? A lot, it seems: smog, the desert, Starbucks coffee, Killzone

In RGB, the hex representation for this color is #A79F94. Unfortunately, it seems there’s no proper name yet for it. What do you think it should be?
