I don’t know which noise to make first!? *Sigh* because of how beautiful and magical Bali is, or *Gasp!* over this insane installation! This is the jaw-dropping work of Jakarta based artist Agnes Hansella aka @macrame_id. Giant macrame made with thick rope, twisted and tied to reveal the “Sunset”, “Mountain” and “Ocean”. Each large-scale piece was on the corresponding side of the building, beautifully reflecting the area surrounding Locca Beach House Bali. Here are Agnes’ words about the project:

The project involves 8 people including me, to knot a 16mm manila rope to the roof construction.
We finished 3 enormous pieces during 12 days of work. With the height from bottom to top measures 766cm, this enormous piece is fun and challenging for me to work with. With macrame, sometimes we can’t plan the whole thing in one go. The ropes have their own nature and we are the ones to follow. The design keeps evolving every time a knot was made. {Thankfully, I made it in time to finish all three just before the coronavirus outbreak in Indonesia.} This project is commissioned by Flowerbloom Studio.”

See? Sigh and Gasp are both required. Oh great, and now I want to go back to Bali. Someday.
