Urip Iku Urup
Urip Iku Urup is a final year project which revolves around cultural modernity in Singapore. The visual and design of this project is based on the narrative of my Javanese family and how each generation interprets Javanese culture, respectively.
As much as narratives on culture is a common topic, my project will be based on how our family practices and enjoys Javanese culture in modern-day Singapore despite the slight clashes between the historical Javanese traditions and Islamic belief. I showcased the narratives of four different generations through the medium of Batik and how it started from my great-grandfather who came to Singapore from East Java in the 1920s.
