(b.1991)

Moch Hasrul is an Indonesian artist based in Jakarta. He holds a B.Ed in Art Education from the State University of Jakarta and an M.FA in Visual Arts from the Bandung Institute of Technology. He works as a media artist and director at Serrum, an organization focused on education and fine arts, and teaches graphic design at a university in Jakarta and Tangerang.

Hasrul's art practice often involves extracting knowledge through tinkering with technology. His work uses computing technology, mechanical systems, sensors, and simple technology to process plastic waste on a small scale. Hasrul explores the discourse of human relationships with technology through interactive installations that use sensors to trigger interactivity. He emphasizes the importance of direct interaction with artwork to produce an aura and convey information to the public. Hasrul also uses elements such as motion, sound, light, mechanism, interactivity, and space to present his artwork.


He manages the Jakarta branch of the Batur studio independently and is active in Gudskul: Studi Kolektif. He has also started a new initiative, GudRnD, which aims to provide alternative knowledge through trial and error. This group focuses on experiments in indoor hydroponics, electronics, mechanics, and plastic packaging recycling

For Hasrul, art serves as an alternative way of learning and exploring knowledge that intersects with history, science, culture, and politics. He views technology as a bridge between these values and believes that while science offers solutions to problems, art can offer a unique dynamic way of distributing knowledge.
