Born in 1985 in Jakarta, Indonesia, Bagus Pandega graduated from Institut Teknologi Bandung (Bandung, Indonesia) with a Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) in 2008, majoring in Sculpture. His work has been exhibited in Jakarta, Singapore, Manila, Stuttgart, Utrecht, and Beirut with recent exhibitions including Random Black at ROH Projects, Jakarta (2016), Prudential Eye Zone, Artscience Museum, Singapore (2015) and Causality, 1335 Mabini, Manila (2014).

Working primarily through kinetics, sounds and lights, Pandega often challenges the pre-conditioned relationship between objects and their audience by emphasizing the notion of the physical space around the latter. In his works, Pandega assembles various electronic systems as ‘modules’ and explores mediums such as voice recorders, cassette and record players, lamps and electronic circuit boards—to name a few. Many of his artworks encourage audience interaction through movement, sound and light.
