Supported by PiNA and Julie’s Bicycle as part of the Creative Climate Leadership Program, this project is a creative intervention in line with the celebration of Tumpek Uduh.
Every six months in the Balinese calendar, “Tumpek Uduh” is a day for the Balinese people to show gratitude towards the trees and natural vegetation as a source of support for human life. On this day, offerings are made for the trees. People will talk to the trees, in order to renew a connection with them. This celebration is a reminder for humans to express gratitude so as to establish a positive relationship with nature.
Art serves as a catalyst to convey the traditional values and will take on a role in bridging the gap between ancient philosophy and the understanding of the current generation. This project aims to preserve traditional knowledge and its awareness; to encourage people to see and not forget where they were rooted.
