Last month my husband and I watched the vampire film Only Lovers Left Alive in Film Casino, Vienna. I think it is the perfect place for this film. On the facade are big neon sign (Looking at this sign I thought it was a casino instead of cinema) and pretty doors with brass color handles. The interior is kind of vintage with eclectic elements, clashing patterns, textures, and geometries. Stripes meet curves, floral meets fauna on the red terasso floor (our outfits add more into the mix too). I couldn't find more information about the building though. It has only one cinema room, not so big and we kept our heads up to watch the film played on the not so big screen because the floor is flat. As petite me, I saw heads in front of me covered up part of the screen which were a little bit annoying.

When we arrived the lobby was empty. There is a little cafe at the corner with a big cowhide couch (on the photo above). A couple of minutes later, after just had been flipping trough magazines, suddenly I found around me had been being floaded with people and even more crowded when we walked out from the cinema room. I looked down and I saw a lot...a lot of feet with different shoes. I heard people talking without I could understand what they were talking about, but I just kept looking down, following my husband's feet walking.  It was too crowded for a small lobby. I didn't take capture the room and those feets unfortunately.
For me the film was like gloomy, eccentric, and toughtful. While I was watching the movie untill walking out trough crowd, I was wondering. Are there real vampires amongst these people around me? How if my stare hit a pair of those pointy glossy well polished shoes, then when I follow along the figure up, I see a pale face with a charming mysterious smile and a pair of cute canines? The haunting thought after watching Only Lovers Left Alive matched the atmosphere in the Film Casino. "Excuse moi...," Adam and Eve said before bite a couple. Some people behind me also said that.

Wish you a super inspiring day!

My Father The Painter

Fadjar Sidik, Indonesian artist, fine art artist, painter

I usually don't expose the people in my personal life (except blur or cropped pic of my husband) on the blog but today I want to introduce website and facebook page of my father: Fadjar Sidik. He was a fine art artist, a painter.

My father passed away at January 18 8.10 PM 10 years ago. He took his last breath in my mother's arm and my witness. Years passed but to this day I am still struggle with the grief, almost secretly. It gives a feeling of irony every new year. He was my best friend and inspiration. His contagious enthusiasm and the motivating effect are remarkable. He was always enthusiastic in things I was interested in and whatever I told him just almost about anything. I mean...no one else would watch runway show on TV with that early teen of me and talked about minimalism in the 90s except him. That is my father I know as a father but what about as an artist?

At the other part of the globe in my homeland, Indonesia, my eldest sister Amreta has been going trough a very special and personal journey collecting memory of our father and his life as an artist while at the same time it was a journey rediscovering her self. As a part of this journey, she has traveled to Bali few times in the past months (a place which has significant meaning in our father's art), digging trough hundreds or maybe thousands of photos, clippings, sketches, doodles in our home in Yogyakarta. Furthermore she creates a website (officially launched this 18th January) and facebook page dedicated to memory of our Fathers, his life in art and her journey. I invite you to check them out:

My sister has personal blog and she creates whimsical, pretty graphics too:

Your visit would be very much appreciated. I hope and believe that this project, the story behind it would inspire others as our father has been inspiration to us, his daughters. I would like to thank my beloved sisters, my mother, all my family and everyone who have contributed support, information and appreciation. Thank you very much :).

Belated New Year post. It's my first post of 2014. Our Silvester night was foggy. We went up the hill just near our home to see enormous fire works springing up and out of landscape but we could only see few of them creeping trough the fog. They looked beautiful tough, in different way. The light from the car driving up the hill was like sunrise bringing hope into the darkness of no where. At least that was what I had in my imagination! Perhaps foggy new year is a good sign. We ended up watching Dinner for One and had a good good laugh...same as every year!

I wish you all super inspiring and wonderful year 2014!

In case you haven't known Dinner for One (The 90th Birthday) that never failed to make me laugh every end of the year, here it is. I never feel boring watching this once a year. It's originally 1963 British Comedy that somehow becomes like tradition as film to watch at New Year night in Austria and Germany.
