Konvokesyen ke 7 Universiti Malaysia Kelantan


Tanggal 9-12hb Okt 2017 merupakan konvokesyen ke 7 Universiti
Malaysia Kelantan. Tentulah hari yang paling bermakna kepada graduan khususnya pelajar-pelajar Ijazah Sarjana Muda Teknologi dengan kepujian(Rekabentuk Komunikasi Visual) dari Fakulti Teknologi Kreatif & Warisan.

Rekabentuk Komunikasi Visual (RKV) antara disiplin ilmu senireka grafik dan merupakan program pengajian yang mengandungi kreativiti digital seperti rekaan identiti korporat, kempen periklanan, fotografi, animasi 2D&3D, rekaan laman web dan video kreatif. Berbekalkan disiplin ini, graduan seharusnya tidak menghadapi masalah untuk memperolehi pekerjaan maupun bergelar usahawan.



Aku hadir sebagai pensyarah RKV pada sidang ke 8 iaitu 12hb Okt jam 8am di Dewan Keusahawanan kampus Kota di Kota Bharu.. Biarpun universiti ini baru menjangkau usia 10 tahun, bertunjangkan teras keusahawanan aku yakin UMK berupaya menawarkan pendidikan yang memenuhi keperluan pasaran inovasi dan industri negara. Tahniah kepada pelajar-pelajar jurusan RKV yang tamat pengajian selama 4 tahun dan seluruh graduan UMK untuk tahun ini.

"Menjana kreativiti pelajar tidak semudah mengungkapkan kata-kata kerana ia harus realistik berdasarkan panduan yang berpaksikan kepada pengaruh persekitaran, kepercayaan manusia dan budaya setempat yang mendokongnya"

Abstract


Malaysian societies are more familiar with batik which hails from Kelantan and Terengganu. They know very little about batik from Pahang which is often more revered for its traditional craft  product such as ‘tenun Pahang’(woven fabric). In other words, Malaysians are oblivious to the uniqueness of batik lukis from Pahang since much information about it offers only a general description. Based on this understanding, the present qualitative research is carried out through a case study method to explore and comprehend the process of Pahang batik lukis motif’s production from the perspectives of idea generation, practitioners, expression, representation, environment, creativity and aesthetics in order to delve deeper into the art behind the creation of batik lukis in Pahang as it is a Malay art heritage which must be conserved. 
......................................SUMMARY..........................................................................
THE FUNCTION OF BATIK LUKIS AS A MEDIUM OF COMMUNICATION 
Through all the evidence described in this article, it is conclusive that the batik lukis motifs are not only the outcome of external and internal creative touch of the practitioner but they also function as a medium of communication in the effort to integrate art and nature. Batik practitioners produce flora and fauna motifs as a result of their meticulous observation of nature as well as its surroundings. Nature and its myriad of living things become the source of inspiration to batik practitioners to communicate through their batik lukis art, the exquisiteness of God’s creations. Figure motifs speak volumes about the batik practitioners passion in portraying human’s life in the culture that they belong to. Some figure motifs that they create are, a group of fishermen pushing the boat to the sea, women weaving coconut leaves, children riding a buffalo and farmers planting their crops : all these are indicative of the practitioners’ effort to make batik lukis as a medium for them to communicate their observations of events as well as activities which take place in a society. In conclusion, all motifs which are produced, including the figure motifs are closely linked to the practitioners’ reflection in communicationg with nature and the various lives which thrive in it. 

CONCLUSION 
Overall, research findings indicate that flora and fauna motif representations are the main motifs which are processed and produced by practitioners at Natural Batik Village. Even though there are geometric and dots as motifs for batik lukis, the number is relatively small. Batik practitioners posit that the less demand for production in dots and geometric patterns is due to the lack of demand from the society for them. Figurative motifs go through visualization or the most attractive narrative as they are very apparent and are mostly displayed in batik lukis motifs at Natural Batik Village. These are the distinctive values of batik lukis in Pahang as compared to batik lukis from Kelantan and Terengganu. In conclusion, through positive acceptance and awareness from all parties involved on the significance of craft to the social pattern and norms, batik art is seen as able to contribute to the development of young generation that is knowledgeable, admires cultural inheritances, competent, creative and competitive.

What say you about Prophet Muhammad


"He was Caesar & Pope in one but he was Pope without the pope's pretensions, Caesar without the religions of Caesar. Without a standing army, without a bodyguard, without a palace, without a fixed revenue. If ever a man had the right to say that he ruled by a right divine, it was Muhammad, for he had all the power without its instruments and without its support"

Rev. Reginald Bosworth Smith
(Muhammad at Mecca, W.Montgomery Watt, Oxford Press, p.53)
