Moch Hasrul an artist who works and lives in Jakarta, Indonesia. Get a bachelor of education (B.Ed) from the department of art education at the State University of Jakarta and a Master of Fine Art (M.FA) from the magister program visual arts at the Bandung Institute of Technology. Working as a media art artist and director at Serrum (an organization with a focus on education and fine arts), now teaches as a graphic design lecturer at a university in Jakarta & Tangerang.
Hasrul works with the idea of the relationship between technology and humans, in which social, cultural, and political phenomena emerge. This phenomenon sparked me to explore more deeply the object of technology and its relationship with humans, searching from various aspects such as historical aspects to environmental aspects and it is undeniable that the objects of technology have contexts according to their respective regions and users. With tinkering as part of Hasrul's digging, tinkering is also a process of extracting knowledge and interpreting the discourse on the relationship between humans and their technology. Hasrul's work includes computing technology, mechanical systems, sensors, simple technology to engineering plastic waste processing on a simple scale.
The Digging is articulated with an artistic approach, with a tendency to interactive art installations through interactive sensors through sensors, using sensors as a trigger for interactivity in his work. For Hasrul, direct interaction with works of art is needed to produce an aura in works of art and this aura facilitates information to the public. Hasrul also uses motion, sound, light, mechanism, interactivity, and space as elements in the presentation of his artwork.
Art as alternative learning for Hasrul in exploring knowledge. In which there are intersections with other disciplines and can be explored through various aspects, namely social, historical, scientific, cultural, and political aspects in society. And technology bridges those values. Science is a way out of the problems that occur. But for Hasrul, art can be questioned as another value of science that can distribute knowledge more dynamically.
