Rubbish can be beautiful~

I saw some interesting contemporary sculptures today when i was doing my research. It was so artistic and creative, the artwork was fantastic, i really wish that Malaysia have this kind of nice structure. Maybe our assignment can be something like this since our campus is creative industry. Everyone knows that creating this kind of big sculpture is costly and it also time consuming, no body is willing to pay for it nor to make it.

But for me, i don't think so. Just like i said, art colleges or universities can assign students to create this kind of sculptures or maybe organize  it as a competition. Through this activity, we can seek the creativity potential in students. For the material to do the sculpture, i think reuse the unwanted item is the best way to solve the the cost problem. In this way, students not only can save money or maybe no need to pay at all for the material. Furthermore, reuse the unwanted item can avoid more rubbish is being throw away. It is always better to reuse the rubbish to make it become something useful and beautiful.

These are made by all kind of unwanted item, it's colorful.

This made by recycle tires, it's cool~

Made by magazine, cute.

Made by recycle bottles, simple nice >.<

Made by unwanted steel from vehicles / machine. 

   I like this the most, the "Sound Wave"

I'm one of them

Yup, i'm a ex-member of marching band in secondary school level, my school band is not as good as western country but still we get a silver medal in Asia. Above is one of the best DCI Marching Band that i admire, Blue Devils, Concord from California.

Marching band is a sport in which a group of instrumental musicians generally perform outdoors and incorporate some type of marching (and possibly onto other movements) with their musical performance. Instrumentation typically includes brass, woodwinds, and percussion instruments. Most marching bands use some kind of uniform (often of a military style) that include the school or organization.

Since i have join marching band, i understand and experience how hard a band should be to develop and become top band in a competition. During my time, my school band takes few month to practice/ prepare for a competition, a formation competition which mean player have to march and play while performing. As the competition is near by , the more we practice. During holidays, others student may have their own fun time, but for us , we need to stand under the hot sun for several hours just to make sure everything is perfect in formation.

It is a very hard task for me when I 1st join the team for competition. I have to remember the step where i need to move together with the music i play , sometime i may forget the next place that i should be, it is dangerous to others member because if i move backward to a wrong way, i may bang into someone with heavy instrument like Tuba. Practice make perfect, after few months of training, it have become something easy to me. Sometime my leg will unconsciously lead me to the way during practice. It was something amazing that some else may not have the chance to experience it.

Be a marching band member, we need to be physical and mentally strong. Exercise is an important element to maintain our stamina so that we can produce high quality of sound during the performance.

What is important in a marching band is the spirit of team work because every single player form the shape of a formation and every sound that played by the player is important to strengthen the sound to impress the audience. A member did wrong, he/she may ruin the whole performance.
Slogan for the band~~ Together We are One!!!! One band, One sound!!!! One band, One heart!!!
These are the slogans which marching bands like to use because it represent united.

Anyway, I'm proud of being a marching band member (ex-member) although i get sunburn and no longer have fair skin. But i got a chance to wear the very cool~~ uniform. ^~^v

Other then that,through marching band i realize that we can train our brain to do multiple task just like they do. They have make the music connected to their body!!! Nothing is impossible, effort and patient are the elements we need.  

 Sometime i wish to change role with others so that i can experience their role, especially color guard (dancer with flag).

"Casa Mila" Building, by Antonio Gaudi
The image above is an example of Biomorphic Architecture in Barcelona. This building was design by Antonio Gaudi  and the theme for this fantastic structure is "under water". This structure have presented the natural motion of water beautifully.

I learn (biomorphic) this word during creative communication design lecturer class and it was told by Ms.How. I was very appreciate that she share this to us, it was really something new to know & learn of.

I have seen some of these structure before but i didn't know that these structures are called Biomorphic Architecture. I like this kind of of structure because of its unique design. It was an brilliant idea that using biology in designing building by modifying natural element like bee's have, tree roots....and their organic composition to apply in a building. 

As i know, biomorphic not only apply in architecture but also in industry design too. More and more designer are using this biomorphic theory in their design. The field of Biomorphic are large and deep, researcher are studying every organic element on earth to came out more ideas. 

     This is another Biomorphic Architecture building, its look like a bee's have to me and it look futuristic too. 

     This maybe can be an inspiration of Biomorphic Architecture's element in designing a building. 

 Can find any Biomorphic Architecture in Malaysia??

 Maybe the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur are the one......who knows??  @_@
 Idea from modifying the maize corn.....maize corn ,something that Malaysia rich of, hahaha~~
But,no doubt it is a beautiful & successful building indeed.

Couple & Purse

I saw this art work through a page call CELEBRATION in my Facebook which i like to visit often. This art work was produce by Vladimir Kush. I was attracted to this art work because i like the way he create this art piece by combining human ( a kissing couple) with the red purse that fill with gold coins. This creative and unusual combination lead me to some question and i was curious about it. I would say that, the artist successfully grab my attention on his art piece.

The 1st question appear in my mind is the purpose of combining the couple with the purse? 2nd, why the purse is in red ? 3rd, the meaning of those gold coin that fill inside the purse?

In my opinion, i think of these:
Red colour represent love. Gold coin represent gain and sacrifices in love(value). Purpose of combining the couple & the purse is, the purse act as a place where the couple's "love" store.

General idea , the combination of kissing couple with red purse that fill with money represent the value of love which means how much they gain and sacrifice when they love each others. Love is just like the purse, there's always money going in and taking out from the purse and love is balance by disburse and sacrifices.

From the art work, we can know that if more and more money is fill into the purse, the further the couple will be push apart, at last the couple will end up with not kissing each other which means they breakup due to too much pressure.So, a balance is needed in LOVE, a relationship.

Cute cartoon displays on transportation.

Why Malaysia don't have this kind of transport display?

As we can see countries like Japan and Taiwan, they have such cute transportation displays. They not only apply these cute displays on their public transportation but also apply them as a theme in restaurants and hospitals. These cute displays like Pikachu, Doraemon, Hello Kitty and many more can't be seen in Malaysia because some of some stupid rules and regulations. I know they put these cartoon characters as their displays are for advertising the cartoon characters purposes, but we as Malaysian has our own cartoon characters too such as Upin dan Ipin and Kampung Boy. Maybe we can consider using the same method the foreigners used to promote our local cartoons in order for our younger generations to know our local cartoon production and extend the lifespan of these local cartoons so that our future generations still can enjoy it.
