Shooting Colors in Indonesia

January 23, 2015 @ MoC

We spent few weeks in Jakarta this January, shooting colors and hunting Indonesian words for our ColorCorpus. It was an interesting experience. Jakarta in itself is not a colorful place (one of the main reasons might be that it is currently under construction). However, and in contrast to the dull surroundings, Jakarta men and especially women are quite colorful. And for those who insist there are always some hidden treasures here and there. On the other hand, this is the birthplace of batik, so when we visited the Textile museum, we couldn’t miss joining the batik workshop taking place that day, it was mostly rewarding ! We didn’t have time to further explore the country and the countryside and the many islands, maybe in the future.

And oh, there is Batik Air too !
