Yesterday I returned from a three day trek to the summit of Mt Rinjani, Lombok Indonesia. Difficult and exhausting, but well organised and breathtaking. From the summit you are greeted with a sea of volcanic peaks from the islands surrounding Lombok.

Mt Rinjani crater lake, from 3600m at dawn.
More Bromo photographs. We watched the sunrise over the volcanoes then jeeped down to the crater. Utterly stunning.
Here are a few of my favourite shots from the lunaresque volcano Bromo, Java Indonesia. Many more to come.
This stunning work by Adam Cvijanovic titled ‘River’ is currently exhibiting at the Biennale of Sydney.
A few images of previous work.
Outstanding oil paintings by Indonesian artist Mahdi Abdullah addressing his homeland of war torn Aceh.
Currently exhibiting at Tujuh Bintang Art Space, Yogyakarta.
Yesterday I made the strenuous climb to the mouth of the active volcano Mt Merapi, in Java, Indonesia. Despite suffering from exhaustion, I did manage to pull out my camera and shoot some half decent footage. These shots will be the basis of a new series of works I will be focusing on in the coming months.
Here is a taste. View of Mt Merbabu, from the summit of Mt Merapi.
Sophie Hirsch’s solo exhibition Kijang Kijangan opened last night at Sewon Art Space, Yogyakarta. One free standing large scale installation sits within the space, billowing plastic intertwines with rusted steel scraps, creating the illusion of a caged cloud.
Below are images from previous exhibitions.
I was cameraless at the opening so didn’t get any shots of the work. The installation did remind me of an animation by http://www.alexanderlehmann.net/ for Noisia.
Awesome Augmented Reality sandbox creating realtime topographical maps. I would love to see an installation involving a giant adult sized sandbox using this concept.
Clever surrealist photographic series by French artist Philippe Ramette currently exhibiting at Taman Menteng in Central Jakarta.
The series reminds me so much of this painting ‘ Wanderer above the Sea of Fog’ (1818) by German artist Caspar David Friedrich that I thought I should include it.
