Digital Batik Application Launched in Switzerland PDF Print E-mail
Written by Maizer   
Tuesday, 18 August 2020

Commemorating Indonesia's 75th Independence Day, Indonesian students at Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI), Lugano, Switzerland in collaboration with UNESCO launched the iWareBatik application for digital documentation of batik as an intangible cultural heritage.

 

This digitization of batik helps stakeholders both Indonesia and the international community to identify various batik textiles, the philosophical values ​​behind the batik motifs, their place of origin, and related information about batik producers in areas such as batik villages / villages, to batik galleries.

 

IWareBatik's Communication Technology Research Coordinator for Indonesian Batik Puspita Ayu Permatasari conveyed the philosophy behind iWareBatik, namely "I am aware of Batik". "Through this application, we hope that people will not only wear batik (wear) but also understand (aware) the meaning of batik that is being used," said Puspita Ayu.

 

Puspita is currently pursuing Information Communication Technology (ICT) for Intangible Cultural Heritage and Tourism as the focus of her doctoral studies at USI.

 

iWareBatik was launched in the form of the iwarebatik.org website and smartphone application. Exactly 17 August 2020, the iWareBatik application can be downloaded on respective cellphones (available on Android and iOS). Through this project, all parties can identify various batik motifs from all over the archipelago and their meanings. More than 100 batik motifs have been successfully summarized in the application, and still will be enriched again.

 

This application is also equipped with artificial intelligence technology that allows users to find out motifs by taking photos of the batik cloth that is being worn. Until now, this application can identify several batik motifs, namely peacock, kawung, ampiek, parang, and will be further developed in the future.

 

Not only are you spoiled visually for hundreds of Indonesian batik motifs, this application also explains the process of making batik in detail starting from the stages of drawing patterns, coloring, painting techniques, and drying the batik cloth described in this application.

 

An interactive map feature is also available in this application, so you can find out the unique batik motifs from each province in Indonesia. "The hope is that people who visit Indonesia, for example to South Kalimantan or Maluku, can find out what batik motifs are typical of the area, before deciding to buy what batik to make as a souvenir," said Puspita.

 

This project also received support from the UNESCO Chair at USI, Lorenzo Cantoni, who stated that this was in line with UNESCO's vision, mission and values, namely the wise use of technology for cultural reservation.

 

In the process of developing this application, Puspita and the USI team also conducted intense consultations with the Indonesian Embassy in Bern. "The idea to digitize batik can be in line with the increasing number of tourists who will come to Indonesia to buy and use batik," said the Indonesian Ambassador to Bern, Muliaman D. Hadad.

 

Therefore, material about Indonesian tourism is included in the application.

 

The development of iWareBatik digital technology aims to increase public awareness of sustainable tourism and the preservation of UNESCO heritage properties (World Heritage Sites / Intangible Cultural Heritage) in Indonesia.

 

This digital technology program is realized through the collaboration of the LPDP Indonesia scholarship, the Cultural Friends Association, the USI eLab Technology Laboratory, the USI UNESCO Chair in Information Communication Technology (ICT).
