Every Artwork is A Perfect Photo Background

Do you agree with the title? Nowadays, people are so usual with photographs. The existence of Instagram and other visual-based social media makes everybody a photographer, a journalist. People are starving on good pictures.

And well, me too. Hahaha. I have warned you to be ready seeing my face on many photos, right? Hahaha. Yes, you're right. This is still about Biennale Jatim 6 I visited last week. Every single photo where my face is shown was taken by my friend, Cahya (well, who else?).


This is Cahya
Remember the space with pop art atmosphere? We tried to imitate the expressions.



And imitated the fashion installations too...


"Gula Itu Merah, Jendral!" probably was the favourite of most people who came here. Because there were some wings for us to take some pictures. I did too to look like angels. But, I was also interested in a big writing "Manisnya Gula". Felt like "I'm sweet, so I want a picture with me under it" hahaha.

Unfortunately blurred :(


 As I promised in the post part 2, you'll see the wall which was full of bran.


Cahya saw the next room and she was sooo excited. Since she was a kind-hearted girl who's active in campus teaching program called ITS Mengajar and she loves children so much.


And the time came. The spaces below made me oh-so-happy and resulted in oh-so-happy pictures.


We're so tired walking and were very happy to find a sofa

How? Get bored with my face? It's your lucky day because we finally come to the last photo, "vespa commercial poster".


So, do you agree that artworks are perfect for photo background or set?
I'm hoping to see you soon, Pals. Oh, and please pray for my final projects. Thank you for your time that was spent to visit this blog!

*Ok, I lied. This is really the last picture. We tried to take pictures with the timer, but we got caught!

An Artsy Saturday Night at Biennale Jatim 6 (part 2)

Assalamualaikum, Pals. It was already last week, but I want to continue to our next steps in Biennale Jatim 6. Next step was in front of the fashion installations. It was a dark room and I found some pieces like this:

It's made of used scanner and it's turned on!
Next room was really red. It's a historical artwork with the wall written with an old timeline about sugar industry in Indonesia in the colonial era. Still in the same room, a decoration was created like a dreamland on the red sky, completed with flying houses, clouds, and wings (for photo freak). This artwork was titled "Gula Itu Merah, Jendral" or "The Sugar is Red, General!".


Many people came as couples :"
Stepped to the next room, our noses were touched by the contaminated air. It's a room with the wall filled of bran, the waste of rice milling. You'll see the wall on my next post, Pals.

I think they're art students. Came to write down the artworks and the artists.

Seems like a crime scene, huh?

They're drawn with pencils, Pals 0.0


I love this room below. It has an installation made of used bicycle. I thought of spinning it, but I was doubt because we're forbidden to touch the artworks in the first time we enter the exhibition. But I saw someone spinning it on Instagram -.-

The dolls were made of reused bottle

A decor inspiration for those who loves pop and vintage in the same time
 And finally, we're so close to the exit door! We found some 'vehicles', hahaha.



You probably wonder why there's no pictures of me in 2 posts about this event. Don't get it wrong, Pals! I'm still the face of this blog. So, prepare yourself. You should be ready to be bored seeing my face on the next post.

See ya,

An Artsy Saturday Night at Biennale Jatim 6 (part 1)

"Arts Ecosystem: Now!"

That tagline succeeded to make my curiosity coming out. I imagined amazing paintings, fantastic installations, a cool event to be reviewed on the blog! Because there will be many good photographs I guessed. And yes, it's not many but soooo many. I'm very confused to pick the photos I want to post. Because they're all so cool and I want you to see all of the artworks. That's why this post will be in more than a part. I even didn't take the pictures of all the artworks and I'm still confused. When I edited the photos, I've just realized why I was so tired while walking around the exhibition.

This year's Biennale Jatim is the 6th and this event, according to the website, is held once in 2 years. Biennale Jatim 6 is held in Balai Pemuda Surabaya in 11th-24th of November. So, there are 2 days more for you to come!

The painting welcomed us
I came with my friend, Cahya right after maghrib and it was quiet there. We filled the guest book and decided to really enjoy the artworks without touching the camera (especially me) in the first round and would take another round for just taking pictures. But apparently it's not a good decision because the situation became crowded in our second round.

Coming to the exhibition, we're welcomed with a very big painting. Well, most of the paintings there were in the big sizes or in small sizes but were put in a certain way so people could enjoy from a few meters (well I learned architecture here). There were also some stories of this event and history of art in Surabaya.



Stepping to the next door, we still saw paintings...

The fish looks clearer in the photo
My friend, Cahya, with the painting that tells about traffic jam and Jakarta's busway
It looks 3D from a certain angle
Actually, there were more paintings but I didn't take all of them in photographs. We stepped up through a small stair. Here, we see three-dimensional artworks. This space was full of people and it's so difficult to take a photo.

Made of used bicycles and pipes
The 'mushrooms' are made of ceramics

The insects were made of recycled glass
A part of a wood doll land
Next, some designed rooms. Each room was decorated in a certain theme...




Next space gave a little pop atmosphere...





And finally, I saw fashion!


Next step was...
Wanna know more?
See ya in the next post!

#SelfReminder: Find Perfect Mates!

Hi, Pals. It's now official that I was not selected as Tokopedia Student Top Ambassador batch 2. It was sad at first, but now I'm fine. Really fine.

Like other girls, I like sharing with girl besties. I told one of my besties my sadness. Like, why there's one who's always accepted in what they're registering. She said it's because what's go public is the success of people.

Then, I really want to share this to people around the world. So, people (especially teenagers) won't get crazy sadness when they get rejected from an opportunity. So, they don't feel alone. If we're not success in an opportunity, then just keep trying on other opportunities. Because sky is so wide. If a point is not yours, probably there is an area of yours. We just haven't seen it.

I remembered a lecturer ever said that a place is also a kind of mate. Probably other opportunities too. If we're rejected to be a crew of an event or media, a staff of an organization, a scholarship recipient, it's not really because we're not capable. We just don't match the opportunity. That's why we should try as much as possible. The more we try, the more possibilities will come. Rejections will come more though. But, just keep searching for the perfect mate!

A Step to Be A Better Me

Living in my late teenagers (my age won’t be ended with ‘teen’ next year) I’ve just realized that life should be for helping people. I mean, I used to know that we should always help people. But this thought is different. Being in my third year of college, I meet new people, new thoughts, amazing thoughts. I learn much from those who always think of other people.

Every time I was interviewed to join some organizations or events committee, my reasons are just for my own experience, my own knowledge, and my own network. I always just look at my own world, my own life, me-oriented in the end. I used to think that thinking for others is too high for me, too big. But now I think that thinking (or living) for others is not just when we come to a slam and giving foods to the poor people there. I think it’s less physical. Like when we want to give a smile to our parents or giving people a better living, not through money or foods.



Based on this thinking, I tried my best on a student program, named Tokopedia Student Top Ambassador batch 2 that were held in Bandung, Surabaya, and Yogyakarta. This program is formed to develop student’s skills in leadership, entrepreneurship, and professional ability. Some other benefits like scholarships and working opportunity were mentioned on their poster. Some requirements and steps were mentioned too. I fulfilled the requirements and sent my creative CV that I made a day before the deadline. Honestly, there were some go-or-not-to-go moments during the registration period and I finally made it to-go.

Firstly, I registered with some me-oriented reasons and for my parents. I want them to know that I’m not just a daughter who always asks for money to buy some clothes or go holiday. I want them to know that I can be a useful person for other people. I am sure they are happy as long as their daughters are happy. But, … yeaaah just let it be my thought.


Anyway, actually I didn’t know what to do for the Tokopedia Student Top Ambassador interview. Just to ensure myself that I’m ready for the interview, I browsed some information about Tokopedia and watched some videos from their channel on Youtube. From the videos, I found that this business was made with the thinking for others, not profit oriented. They mentioned it “model bisnis terindah di dunia” or likely “the greatest and most beautiful business model in the world”. It gave a strong motivation for me to join this program. Being a part of a business that made with thinking for others’ sake probably will make me a good individual too.


By the way, I’ve done the interview with Tokopedia Nakama (a name for people who work in Tokopedia) in an awesome yet homey co-working space. It’s last week’s Wednesday and even though the location was quite far, I met many ITS students there. They’re amazing students that are active in some organizations and community. So, wish me luck, Pals!

Oh, and I don’t know if it’s allowed or not. But just for sharing, I was not asked a question about the business of Tokopedia. Their questions were still related to our CV and activities, exclude some other base questions in an interview, such as self-introduction and motivation to join this program. And for the study case, they asked for some event ideas that suitable for students. It’s a good thing that I was in a Google Students Group and know that a Google Student Ambassador should make an event in the college. So at least, I’ve prepared some ideas while waiting for my interview time and not took a long time to answer the question. So, again, wish me luck, Pals! They said the chosen students will be contacted most lately this week's Friday, which means today. And they haven't contacted me yet :(

Social Media Rules

I used to always appear on social media. Until the level where I thought that online living is as important as real life. Well, I still do think the same. I still think that online living is important nowadays. But, it's just getting less exciting for me currently.

I don't know why. Probably just because a person whose social media I always cared started to disappear in his online living. Or maybe I'm just getting bored because I am handling so many social media accounts for organizations in college.

Then, yesterday, I found Sonia Eryka's post on Snapchat.



Then I think that probably I am a fake person on the internet. Maybe I take online living too seriously. I am less spontaneous. Maybe I am not who I really am, or forget to know more about who is the real me. That maybe taking online living for fun is fun. Probably I don't need to look so professional in taking photos or updating my blog.

And anyway, I decided to focus to be good in real life after some sort of 'an amateur love story' happened. Thank you my favourite blogger, Sonia Eryka, to make me realize that even in social media life, we should keep being an actual human being.

New Face!

Howdy, Pals. Assalamualaikum...

Do you guys have ever thought that getting bored is a part of humanity? If yes, so I'm really into humanity. Cause I'm bored with my last theme of this blog. And, yes now you can see it. I have my new blog face!

Actually, I planned to change the theme of this blog on the first day of November for welcoming November. But, what can I do? I'm an architecture student who doesn't even sleep for her messy final project (a little bit too much hahaha). Actually, the change is just simple. Not an overall change, but only some changes header, icons, some layouts. Well, quite many, huh?


So, welcome to the new World of Wardah!

*Actually when I wrote this post, some changes I planned haven't been applied.
