How do we create a city within a city?

First we welcome the outcasts and outliers and secondly welcome their ideas and visions. Have enough of the same minds, and you now have your own state within your connected psyches. Build and expand upon that connected expression and a sub-culture will be birthed. We don’t need new buildings for our cities, instead, we need developed tastes & minds. NEOKL is built upon these thoughts – Support your local artisans and businesses. Support the youth and elders. Support the unappreciated.  – As long as we hold onto these principles, NEOKL will never fall like Babylon or be lost like Atlantis. It could very well be a fool’s utopian state but if in that case, we are already outcasts and outliers, how more foolish can it become? Let’s create our Shangri-La by bringing forth NEOKL.

With Love, 

Your Neighbour

GRAPHIC CATALOG: NKL2020-a

the end broadcast scan_AR

the end broadcast _catalog_webandmobile

The above is the first chapter of our graphic instalment for NKL-2020. Weʼre slowly trying to change how we do things here at NEOKL- being mindful of our production output and the waste that comes with the act of creating. We love what we do and hopefully we can reach a point that it becomes second nature to us to keep making new exciting objects without creating more waste. Your participation in this journey is crucial. Thank you for letting us do things differently.

The original idea of how we were going to intoduce the RECON idealogy had to be postponed due to the Movement Control Order. It was suppose to roll out yesterday (Sat, 28.3.2020) for our last UFOnight at T-MART!, Ss15, before we close down. First preparation was to have our printers print out this NKL2020-a catalog onto a Silkscreened heat transfer paper (different from digital printed heat transfers), which we had already scheduled. The tees were carefully selected, washed, and put through a 3 phase dyeing process and finally iron-pressed. The goal of putting the t-shirts through this processes was to lean on the minor inconsistencies of second-hand items- to have an end product that had a unique individual characteristics based on each t-shirt’s reaction to the dye. On event day, we were going to rent a heat-press machine and custom press this catalog graphic onto our selection of upcycled tees. The owner of the tee will still be able to tap into our Colored Augmented Reality function by scanning the graphic with their phone. This was our way of pushing out our new RECON ideology.

recon_logo

RECON is NEOKL’s future pledge to start using second-hand wares as material for our products. Starting 2020 we are changing our production line model- to not rely on only first-hand items. RECON is the ideology we will follow.

  • RECONsider: The thinking phase. View a second-hand item as what it is, and try considering it in a different light. Decide on whether to maintain its silhouette or realise that there’s potential to change its final form.
  • RECONfigure: The sketching phase. Recognise the parts that are involved, and rearrange the elements of the product until you reach a silhouette/form that is satisfactory.
  • RECONstruct: The creation phase. Recreate the reconfigured item and don’t be afraid to include other processes like dyeing, distressing, bleaching etc…

So does this mean we will be fully running on upcycled objects? Well thats the big hope. We’re trying to slowly phase out using first-hand items but we’ve got to be realistic too. Things like blank caps/hats are hard to come by in the second-hand market (at least from where we’re based at), so for the time being, we foresee using first-hand blanks for those type of items. In cases of using first-hand materials, not over-stocking is tantamount to having a lean and sustainable supply chain.

Life has its own way of doing things and sometimes you have to know when to surrender and let life run its course. As most of you know, before the MCO, we were already in the process of closing down T-MART!, and the original idea relied on the mart’s empty space to host the final event. But instead of waiting for everything to subside, we felt that we can still roll out the RECON idealogy and Graphic catalog virtually-  what’s important is that we reach an audience regardless of the method. Hopefully when everything settles and we resume our lives, we get a chance to proceed with the initial plan we had.

T-SUMMER FOREVER!

FEATURE: Our Souls Can't Sync with Tech? by A.B

our souls cant sync with tech

 

We did not plan for this slogan to be the main copy for NKL19/20,but somehow weve been getting feedback that it resonates with a lot  of people. So here’s an explanation to why that may be the case.

“Our Souls Can’t Sync with Tech” is not a call to denounce technology but of one to embrace it- but not without caution. Its inevitable that our lives will soon be fully synced with future technologies and make no mistake, the transition will be seamless. For example, we have allowed algorithms to take part in our social lives even to the extend of applying it to our global financial systems. By entrusting a big part of our trading ecosystem to a machine, humans can then trade & grow wealth at a more optimum and exponential rate.

 

our souls cant sync with tech_2

 

Ironically, embracing new machines has always been part of our human history. We have embraced the Renaissance Age, the Age of Sail, the Age of Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution, the Machine Age, the Atomic Age, & the Space Age, just to name a few. Presently we are in the midst of the information age which will be the main key that ushers us into the age of Artificial Intelligence (A.i)… but at what cost?our souls cant sync with tech_7

our souls cant sync with tech_3

industrial age painting industrial age painting_2

 

The concept of privacy and personal data has been brought up a lot recently. We key in so many details of our daily lives into this cloud of information, but How much of whats left of you remains personal? Maybe its inevitable. Maybe embracing the peak of the information age also means giving up yours- Being one with the cloud. In all this chaos, Whats crucial, is that the idea of a Soul should not dissipate.

 

Spiritual panic

 

Here comes the point of why we think people resonate with the slogan so much. There’s a universal consensus agreeing that we have moved far from how humans originally lived and there’s a general sense of feeling lost in this transition. Elon musk has been quoted saying “We’re already a cyborg, You have a digital version of yourself, a partial version of yourself online in the form of your emails, your social media, and all the things that you do.”. We have entered the first stages of combining the human biology with technology and this trajectory may cause some anxiety for those who fear of being left behind. But in all this doubt, we feel that something deemed vague and intangible may be the answer to our post A.i individuality. Something an A.i might have trouble calculating. Understanding that the cloud may have your data but your value is in the soul.

our souls cant sync with tech_4

Here at NEOKL, we constantly find ourselves coming back to the same pool of inspiration whenever we are in the midst of design ideation. We are fascinated by the prospect of a cold & bleak future. As odd as it may sound, the forthcoming of an impersonal future drives us to inject hope into the things we make – In this case, inserting the quote “Our Souls Can’t Sync with Tech” into NKL19/20 products.

 This article isn’t about discouraging progress, instead it is a message to ensure you that all is not lost. While the fight for the privacy of personal data still goes on, its important to remind ourselves that we are not made up of codes… but mind & body. Do not feel as if you’re reduced to just numbers. You are more than just data.

CONCEPT ART: Hiding In Plain Site 2019/2020

Truthfully, this concept art is an accidental find. I started off trying to come up with an idea to promote the next UFOnight (which is coming soon), so i went on “highlighting” the paper with a marker which created a design by-product that looks like a cross between photostatting and sketching. The process was very minimal & hands-on. All that was involved was an Artline120 20mm marker and a printed paper. I’m sure this technic is not new, but its interesting how a 10-minute accident can turn into something poetic (at least to my eyes). These sort of accidents don’t happen often, and it often happens during more hands on processes. – A.B

ufoRECORDS: Freefall.6 session w/ DownLoadNoir & Yohei Arafat

ufoRECORDS boys DownLoadNoir & Yohei Arafat tag teams the latest ufoR FREEFALL segment for T-MARTradio!. Right of the bat, the boys brings us down to a gloomy darker world by guiding you through a tunnel of reverb and distortion.  By the 20:00 mark, it feels like you’ve arrived at the main chamber with a sunlit oasis, the beat starts to pick up and get brighter. The distortion on this mix gives it a bit more texture, sometimes sounding like wave interference.mart mix album cover art square_ufoRECS_freefall6

This is an audio excerpt from “ufoRECS FREEFALL SESSION 5” played at TMARTRADIO!. It starts off with a steady rhythm and slowly tapers off into a distorted melodic riff and ends with a few layers of melodies stacked on top another. You can listen to the full session here.

What is UPUP?

upcycled uprising logo copyImagine looking up at a surrounding landscape of big hills, except instead of trees, rocks, and earth, these hills are created out of piles and piles of used clothing.  Every year mass amounts of used clothing are discarded and sent to fill up an already overloaded landfill. Due to the enormous nature of the problem, its hard to wrap one’s head around solving such a big and almost impossible task. But a simple step to start with as a collective is to upcycle.

NEOKL UPCYCLED UPRISING (UPUP) is a line that combines the old with the new to elevate the value of what the general public understands as second-hand wear. Each NEOKL UPUP piece is unique to its design except for a few characteristics like position of designs or product base colour.

NEOKL UPUP will feature 5 unique pieces and is out now. Available directly from us or TRANSITmart!. Upcycle your Future!

The above is the first chapter of our graphic instalment for NKL-2020. Weʼre slowly trying to change how we do things here at NEOKL- being mindful of our production output and the waste that comes with the act of creating. We love what we do and hopefully we can reach a point that it becomes second nature to us to keep making new exciting objects without creating more waste. Your participation in this journey is crucial. Thank you for letting us do things differently.

The original idea of how we were going to intoduce the RECON idealogy had to be postponed due to the Movement Control Order. It was suppose to roll out yesterday (Sat, 28.3.2020) for our last UFOnight at T-MART!, Ss15, before we close down. First preparation was to have our printers print out this NKL2020-a catalog onto a Silkscreened heat transfer paper (different from digital printed heat transfers), which we had already scheduled. The tees were carefully selected, washed, and put through a 3 phase dyeing process and finally iron-pressed. The goal of putting the t-shirts through this processes was to lean on the minor inconsistencies of second-hand items- to have an end product that had a unique individual characteristics based on each t-shirt’s reaction to the dye. On event day, we were going to rent a heat-press machine and custom press this catalog graphic onto our selection of upcycled tees. The owner of the tee will still be able to tap into our Colored Augmented Reality function by scanning the graphic with their phone. This was our way of pushing out our new RECON ideology.

recon_logo

RECON is NEOKL’s future pledge to start using second-hand wares as material for our products. Starting 2020 we are changing our production line model- to not rely on only first-hand items. RECON is the ideology we will follow.

  • RECONsider: The thinking phase. View a second-hand item as what it is, and try considering it in a different light. Decide on whether to maintain its silhouette or realise that there’s potential to change its final form.
  • RECONfigure: The sketching phase. Recognise the parts that are involved, and rearrange the elements of the product until you reach a silhouette/form that is satisfactory.
  • RECONstruct: The creation phase. Recreate the reconfigured item and don’t be afraid to include other processes like dyeing, distressing, bleaching etc…

So does this mean we will be fully running on upcycled objects? Well thats the big hope. We’re trying to slowly phase out using first-hand items but we’ve got to be realistic too. Things like blank caps/hats are hard to come by in the second-hand market (at least from where we’re based at), so for the time being, we foresee using first-hand blanks for those type of items. In cases of using first-hand materials, not over-stocking is tantamount to having a lean and sustainable supply chain.

Life has its own way of doing things and sometimes you have to know when to surrender and let life run its course. As most of you know, before the MCO, we were already in the process of closing down T-MART!, and the original idea relied on the mart’s empty space to host the final event. But instead of waiting for everything to subside, we felt that we can still roll out the RECON idealogy and Graphic catalog virtually-  what’s important is that we reach an audience regardless of the method. Hopefully when everything settles and we resume our lives, we get a chance to proceed with the initial plan we had.

We pick up from where we left off, Thanks for tuning in! To listen from the neokl.net home-page, click on the unmute icon on the top right corner of the site. The E.N.D Broadcast is our way of keeping anyone out there entertained during this lockdown.

We apologize for any shortcomings- this session was a one man show with Arma handling the visuals, audio, streaming, hosting and research. All other team members are forced to be on social-distancing mode. Thank you for tuning in, stay safe. Lets protect the sanctity of humanity.

These are references to the artworks displayed on our “The Earth Now Distant Livestream Broadcast”. None of these paintings are official images for the works of the classical composers featured. These photos were used as visual enhancers to capture the mood and movement of the music. Although not connected to the music, these paintings we’re chosen on the basis of being created on the same as year the music was published. In hopes by doing so, an era of a particular creative movement can be felt through audio and visual senses.

Isle of the Dead (GermanDie Toteninsel) is the best-known painting of Swiss Symbolist artist Arnold Böcklin (1827–1901).

We got suspended! It was suppose to be a 2-hour long session, but Youtube cut us off during Sergei Rachmaninoff’s “The Ilse of the Dead”. Well, we tried. At least we got a good hour out of this session! and we’re still left with 1 more hour of material. Probably will try for another session if we get some free time. The E.N.D Broadcast is our way of keeping anyone out there entertained during this lockdown.

We apologize for any shortcomings- this session was a one man show with Arma handling the visuals, audio, streaming, hosting and research. All other team members are forced to be on social-distancing mode. Enjoy and sorry for the abrupt ending!

our souls cant sync with tech

 

We did not plan for this slogan to be the main copy for NKL19/20,but somehow weve been getting feedback that it resonates with a lot  of people. So here’s an explanation to why that may be the case.

“Our Souls Can’t Sync with Tech” is not a call to denounce technology but of one to embrace it- but not without caution. Its inevitable that our lives will soon be fully synced with future technologies and make no mistake, the transition will be seamless. For example, we have allowed algorithms to take part in our social lives even to the extend of applying it to our global financial systems. By entrusting a big part of our trading ecosystem to a machine, humans can then trade & grow wealth at a more optimum and exponential rate.

 

our souls cant sync with tech_2

 

Ironically, embracing new machines has always been part of our human history. We have embraced the Renaissance Age, the Age of Sail, the Age of Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution, the Machine Age, the Atomic Age, & the Space Age, just to name a few. Presently we are in the midst of the information age which will be the main key that ushers us into the age of Artificial Intelligence (A.i)… but at what cost?our souls cant sync with tech_7

our souls cant sync with tech_3

industrial age painting industrial age painting_2

 

The concept of privacy and personal data has been brought up a lot recently. We key in so many details of our daily lives into this cloud of information, but How much of whats left of you remains personal? Maybe its inevitable. Maybe embracing the peak of the information age also means giving up yours- Being one with the cloud. In all this chaos, Whats crucial, is that the idea of a Soul should not dissipate.

 

Spiritual panic

 

Here comes the point of why we think people resonate with the slogan so much. There’s a universal consensus agreeing that we have moved far from how humans originally lived and there’s a general sense of feeling lost in this transition. Elon musk has been quoted saying “We’re already a cyborg, You have a digital version of yourself, a partial version of yourself online in the form of your emails, your social media, and all the things that you do.”. We have entered the first stages of combining the human biology with technology and this trajectory may cause some anxiety for those who fear of being left behind. But in all this doubt, we feel that something deemed vague and intangible may be the answer to our post A.i individuality. Something an A.i might have trouble calculating. Understanding that the cloud may have your data but your value is in the soul.

our souls cant sync with tech_4

Here at NEOKL, we constantly find ourselves coming back to the same pool of inspiration whenever we are in the midst of design ideation. We are fascinated by the prospect of a cold & bleak future. As odd as it may sound, the forthcoming of an impersonal future drives us to inject hope into the things we make – In this case, inserting the quote “Our Souls Can’t Sync with Tech” into NKL19/20 products.

 This article isn’t about discouraging progress, instead it is a message to ensure you that all is not lost. While the fight for the privacy of personal data still goes on, its important to remind ourselves that we are not made up of codes… but mind & body. Do not feel as if you’re reduced to just numbers. You are more than just data.

Truthfully, this concept art is an accidental find. I started off trying to come up with an idea to promote the next UFOnight (which is coming soon), so i went on “highlighting” the paper with a marker which created a design by-product that looks like a cross between photostatting and sketching. The process was very minimal & hands-on. All that was involved was an Artline120 20mm marker and a printed paper. I’m sure this technic is not new, but its interesting how a 10-minute accident can turn into something poetic (at least to my eyes). These sort of accidents don’t happen often, and it often happens during more hands on processes. – A.B

ufoRECORDS boys DownLoadNoir & Yohei Arafat tag teams the latest ufoR FREEFALL segment for T-MARTradio!. Right of the bat, the boys brings us down to a gloomy darker world by guiding you through a tunnel of reverb and distortion.  By the 20:00 mark, it feels like you’ve arrived at the main chamber with a sunlit oasis, the beat starts to pick up and get brighter. The distortion on this mix gives it a bit more texture, sometimes sounding like wave interference.mart mix album cover art square_ufoRECS_freefall6

This is an audio excerpt from “ufoRECS FREEFALL SESSION 5” played at TMARTRADIO!. It starts off with a steady rhythm and slowly tapers off into a distorted melodic riff and ends with a few layers of melodies stacked on top another. You can listen to the full session here.
