Frederik De Wilde



  • Frederik De Wilde (b. 1975) studies fine arts, media arts and philosophy. De Wilde works at the interstice of the art, science and technology. The conceptual crux of his artistic praxis are the notions of the inaudible, intangible, and invisible. An excellent example is the conceptualisation, and creation, of the Blackest-Black nano engineered art made in collaboration with Rice University and NASA. The project received the Ars Electronica Next Idea Award and the Best European Collaboration Award between an artist and scientist, extensively covered (e.g. Huffington post, Creators Project, TED). In 2016 De Wilde brings the Blackest-Black art to the Moon in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon, NASA, AstroRobotics and Space-X. De Wilde collaborated with the KIT micro- and collective robotics lab, is a finalist of the ZKM app art award with ‘Coremites,’ and uses often data as a source for his creations (e.g. data visualizations, sonifications).
