Nyepi Balinese news year / Lars Henkel world

posted in Varied others  at 3.18 PM from Ubud, Bali / Indonesia

Nyepi, the Balinese new year day...

So, tomorrow is the night before Nyepi here, the Balinese new year day. It’s that time of year once again where the monsters come out. So tomorrow, all the locals go wild with the parade of “ogoh-ogohs”, large monsters made from paper mache by the villagers, which are paraded through the streets and later burned to symbolise a cleansing of negative energies. From midnight, everything goes silent. All phones are switched off, no internet, no electricity, not even flights in and out of Bali for 24 hours.
 
Time for contemplation and appreciation. A day of total silence across the island. There is no sound, and black cloth is pulled across the windows. Nobody is allowed to work or to go outside, tourists included. No electricity should be used, and no noise is permitted. The idea is that the evil spirits, roused the night before, are duped into thinking that nobody inhabits the island, and decide to go away.

Happy to be here for this strange an usual day (me without electricity... what will I do !!!)

Instagram, a visual journey book by axlif

posted in Varied others  at 1.59 AM from Ubud, Bali / Indonesia
I already publish Axlif instagram project in the 113/577 ebook, and he seems to be passionate by the app and all which turns around it... So, his new project is now a book about it. The design reminds me the deconstructed editorial design of the Ray Gun magazine, and I just love it !

February app highlight : flipboard

posted in Varied others  at 3.02 PM from Jimbaran, Bali / Indonesia listening Depeche Mode Playing the angels
I am in a great house in the south south of Bali, more pictures will follow soon... Anyway, I continue by HIGHLIGHT posts, here comes the ipad/iphone app : Flipboard. I guess a lot of people new it but talking with some friends, it seems not... It is a kind of "personal magazine" app, as it take your social media sources and do a real "flip" magazine... So great idea, so usufull... start to use it and you will understand... (as I am french, the images show french version, of course...)
