Abstract

The paper reports the analysis of phylomemetic tree onto batik motifs developed uniquely in all corners of living and in the heart of tradition of Indonesian people. The diversity is visualized, be it classical traditional motifs and the ones recognized to be recently innovated. This is the first important thing we can learn about through the phylomemetic tree, i.e.: As a visualization of creativity landscapes of Indonesian batik. The second thing to be learned is that we could see the clustering of collective cognitive people respect to different ethnic groups and community in which the batik motifs were originally developed as well as innovated and improved dependent on the way people at the region produce, design, and then appreciate batik. This brings us to the concluding remarks, that batik is the world heritage grown in Indonesian archipelago.

Keywords: batik, phylomemetic tree, memetics, Indonesian archipelago, traditional heritage, fractal design
