THET OO MAUNG
Film Maker + Photographer
Artist Statement: I love to collaborate with different artists from different fields. Sometime, their thoughts and feeling are syncing with me. When we collaborate with my video works and their works brings out the something unique beauty. Especially collaborating with the young and new generations make me more thoughtful and gives more freedom of creativity. Viewers will feel something new through the collaborative videos and words.
