Frederik Heyman's (°1984) work is a balancing act incorporating multiple media. Heyman's various background is clearly visible in the working process. The outcome, mainly created in a digitally altered environment, results in digital installations and video. In each image every element and action are carefully designed and defined in advance.
In his work, Frederik Heyman uses photogrammetry to stage digital worlds out of relics of the past. Because one needs time to experience three dimensions, a 3D-scan is a bearer of duration. This duration gives Heyman’s work a narrative element which is often amplified by (mechanically induced) movement and timed text. For Heyman, the 3D-scan is not only a means to conserve the past, but also a means to recycle the present and an attempt shape the future.
Heyman explores the desire to overcome humanity. Technology and the human body are the protagonists.
His imagery, whether based on fact or fiction, ask us how we want to remember.
