Frederik De Wilde

Frederik De Wilde’s artistic praxis situates itself on the interstice of art, science and technology exploring notions of the inaudible, intangible and invisible in digital and physical spaces. De Wilde critically examines the impact of technology and the role of art in our increasingly hyperconnected, -automated, -polarised world but which potentially offers a new model, new aesthetic with new consequences and organisation.

In the audiovisual artwork HYPERMINER_EXTRACTED EARTH he explores the HYPER EXTRACTION of natural and economically valuable resources using advanced mining acceleration technologies by the means of hyperspectral imaging, artificial intelligence and data-driven decision making. The artwork shows how deposits are allocated, extracted (speculative) and used to create a new geode composed of the most valuable natural resources found on Earth.
