Frederik de Wilde


Frederik De Wilde works at the interstice of the art, science and technology. Frederik studied fine arts, media arts and philosophy. 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 art made in collaboration with American universities and NASA.

In 2019 De Wilde brings the Blackest-Black art to the Moon in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon (, NASA, Astrobotic and Space-X.


The conceptual crux of De Wilde’s artistic praxis are the notions of the inaudible, intangible and invisible. It is this interstitial territory that De Wilde explores in his various works. Sometimes on the side of the technological, often in the conceptual, perceptual, sensorial and human register. De Wilde’s art is grounded in the interaction between complex systems, both biological and technological as societal. Moreover, the indistinct, diffuse, ‘fuzzy’ area where the biological and technological overlap and commingle is a productive and favoured ground for De Wilde’s projects/projections.

For TEC ART he will show us one of his HyperThinkers.


“I Cross-examine the artwork and its limits, the conventions of the exhibition, production, reception, distribution, interpretation, … and the various forms and combinations that may arise out of. Specifically, my coexistence with the sciences aims to explore new angles from which art can be understood. How do we connect the blind spots, respectively, art and science? This seems to me a crucial question.” – Frederik De Wilde
