Walnut bolsters from our own harvest, used for ink making.
"Cheap and easy to apply, synthetic dyes and pigments have produced a major cultural revolution that has irreversibly changed the whole world. People everywhere are now accustomed to take colours for granted, to be surrounded by them in most circumstances of their lives without necessarily paying conscious attention to them.
As fossil resources are becoming less and less abundant, it is one of the challenges of the 21st century to keep colours available and affordable for the huge human masses of today and the even bigger numbers expected in the future. The alternative will be: either to the obliged to resort to a white or non coloured environment because of a sheer scarcity of colorants or, through intensified scientific research, keep our use of colours an aesthetic choice.
Colorants of the future will probably result from an optimized combination of all the
different types of resources of our globe, including recycled ones. They will most likely include again some natural dyestuffs, already known or still to be discovered, necessarily produced and processed by improved techniques. Research into natural colorants, therefore, as presented in this volume, is a major issue of our epoch."

What are we seeing here
Not a photogenic couple in art gallery
Not an elegant gesture through fancy high tea
Not another instagrammable photo with no content quality
What are we seeing here
Walking in the ‘dirty’ place of KL
Washing down the turbulence Thursday
With Rozu Pisoko and Plastic Love and Mojito
Unwrapping layers of past
And sharing a pinch of future
It’s just a spark
But good enough to keep me going
And here I am
Retrieving back all the dreams that I’ve been throwing
