The beauty of culture and nature owned by Bali and Indonesia are very attractive to be immortalized in a recording medium, either in the form of creative photography, film and dance. Not only that, the diversity of culture and exotic nature can also be captured and presented in the animation medium. These media have existed and been exhibited at the campus of the Indonesia Institute of the Arts (ISI) Denpasar, Friday (Jul 18).
The exhibition with the theme “Through the Sixth Creative Medium, Strengthening of the National Identity through the Arts” displayed 60 works of photography denoting the collaboration between the Faculty of Arts and Design (FSRD) of the ISI Denpasar with the Faculty of the Recording Media Arts (FSRM) of the ISI Yogyakarta. The exhibition was also graced with screening of 20 films, 10 animation works as well as 3 game animations.
Amidst the works of art on display, there were also some works of seven students from Malaysia and one work from the University of Western Australia (UWA). At the same time it was also displayed the Final Assignment for the academic year 2013/2014 of the Photography Study Program of the ISI Denpasar. Similarly, it was resumed with the meeting of the National Association of Indonesian Recording Media Arts Lecturers (ADSMRI) with participants coming from the art colleges in Indonesia coalesced into the Indonesian Art Higher Education Cooperation Agency (BKS-PTSI).
The Dean of FSRM of the ISI Jogjakarta, Lutfi R. Alexandri, said the exhibition and art recording media exposure posed the result of cooperation of the FSRD of the ISI Denpasar and Faculty of Recording Media Arts (FSRM) of the ISI Yogyakarta. “The event poses a forum to seek common ground and strategies to be done by the art of recording media in the creative industries,” he said.
