INDONESIAN ARTIST INSPIRES PROJECT TO RESTORE SENGGIGI REEF
A dead coral reef off Senggigi Beach in Lombok will be given new life on 23 May by Indonesia’s acclaimed artist, Teguh Ostenrik, who will “electrify” his metal sculptures with a revolutionary scientific process that turns dissolved minerals in seawater into Biorock, or “seament.”
The project is a collaborative effort by the Lombok Hotel Association (LHA) and Indonesian Marine Affairs and Fisheries (KKP), with support from the Gili Eco Trust.
There’s so much new development going on in and around Senggigi that it’s hard to keep up with it all!
Local residents would have noticed the long iron fences that have gone up on the main road in Batu Layar, just north of the Bintang Senggigi Hotel, in the past couple of weeks – heralding another beachfront development is about to commence.
