My proposed poster for Ubud Writer & Reader Festival

16 Jul

I propose this artwork from the UWRF theme, “Nandurin Karang diawak | Cultivate the land within ”

“Nandurin Karang Awak” is a phrase in Balinese langueage which mean is “cultivating land within”. Inspired by one sentence on gaguritan Salampah Laku, a literature of poetry written by Kawi-Wiku Ida Pedanda Made Sidemen. He written the phrase to teach us to live our life happyly in simple life. Try to realize ‘self’ that rich with potency. We have had taught by our mother when we were fetus about love and humanity.

Cultivating ourself as it is a farm, spread the goodness seed, cut the bushland of egoism, hatred, jealousy then harvest the goodness we’d planted.

In this poster I transform the theme with my own imagination, the banyan tree in heart shape, is symbolize the heart that growing bigger and make the warm world getting cooling down. the small fire is symbolize the passion and the 3 pens are symbolizing 3 powers of Gods, creator, keeper and destroyer … Writer and reader can be Creator, Keeper and Destroyer of negative things with their Knowledge.

diinspirasi oleh salah satu kalimat dalam gaguritan Salampah Laku, puisi panjang tradisional yang ditulis oleh Kawi-Wiku (pendeta-sastrawan) Ida Pedanda Made Sidemen. Dalam geguritan itu Ida Pedanda Made Sidemen menyatakan,”…idep beline mangkin, makinkin mayasa lacur, tong ngelah karang sawah, karang awake tandurin…” (kehendak kakanda sekarang, mulai melakukan tapa kesederhanaan, tidak memiliki tanah sawah, maka tubuh diri-lah yang ditanami)

Mengolah diri sendiri sebagaimana mengolah sawah—menyebarkan benih kebajikan, memotong rumput-rumput keinginan, serta memanen dengan seksama agar hanya biji budi terbaik yang dihasilkan—-merupakan
konsep filosofis penting dalam tataran spiritual Bali. Dalam tataran keseharian, pernyataan Ida Pedanda Made Sidemen mencerminkan rasa optimis dari kelompok manusia yang tidak memiliki tanah—baik karena kemiskinan, pilihan maupun karena pengasingan—namun masih memiliki keyakinan pada kemampuan dan potensi diri pribadi mereka masing-masing.

Ida Pedanda Made Sidemen diakui sebagai salah satu Kawi-Wiku terbesar sepanjang sejarah Bali. Beliau menulis sejumlah karya sastra, seperti Siwagama, Kakawin Candra Bhairawa, Kakawin Cayadijaya, Kakawin Kalpha Sanghara, Kidung Pisacarana, dan Kidung Rangsang. Selain menulis karya sastra serta melayani umat dengan memimpin upacara keagamaan, Ida Pedanda Made Sidemen juga dikenal sebagai ahli arsitektur tradisional yang mumpuni. Beliau meninggal pada 10 September 1984 dalam usia 126
