MsDailyLife, ID – In this Visibly Smart film, contemporary Indonesia is revealed through the eyes of batik fabric and clothing designer, Nancy Margried. Batik is a fabric dyeing and printing method dating back as far as the 6th century and remains a treasured cultural symbol of Indonesia. UNESCO designated Indonesian batik as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity in 2009. Nancy’s Bandung-based design atelier, Batik Fractal, is reinventing batik design with 3D modeling software her team created while maintaining much of the traditional production process. The film illustrates how everyday people can realize their creative ambitions while remaining true to their culture through the use of technology.
