Description

In Bahasa, the language spoken in Indonesia, mantap can mean steady, steadfast or even. It has also recently evolved to mean excellent.

The octahedron, a volume made of two pyramids with a shared base, is a symbol of the Disorient mythology. When we double the length of the four lower edges of an octahedron, the third pyramid that emerges serves as a new base and makes the structure stable and self-supporting. We call that shape Mantap.

Mantap can be read as a primal version of the Man, the wooden installation that is burned almost every year since the 1990s in the Nevada desert.

The desire to keep burning, no matter what, is strong in us, so on Sat. Sep. 4th, 2021 at sunset Disorient presents Burning Mantap on Pantai Beraban in Tabanan, Bali,

As Mantap is consumed by the flames, we set our intention on being mantap (excellent) to ourselves and to others.
