Hafiz Maha

Statement

My main artistic focus revolves around fostering interactivity between art and the audience, achieved through mediums such as games, animation, Virtual Reality and other interactive forms of media. As an educator and a member of Serrum, and now part of Gudskul (Ruang Rupa, Serrum, and GHH) — an artist community dedicated to art education — I consistently connect my art to Exploring the intersection of humanity and pedagogy between future thinking and technology, I aim to create a virtual space that navigates the evolving dynamics of these elements.
