I wrote a brief article on my experience of artist-artisan collaboration during my residency in the Jatiwangi Art Factory (JaF) in Indonesia last year. The article was published in Hand/Eye Magazine a few days ago.

The Auma belt was one of my projects during my stay there, and JaF helped make it happen. In the article, I also featured the works of two other foreign artists who had similar collaborations during their residencies in JaF --- I am thankful to Wanda Gillespie of Australia and Mella Jaarsma of Poland for their cooperation. In the (prolonged) process of arriving at this article, I consulted several folks in Indonesia, I am thankful to them as well.
