Thomas Heidtmann Studio

Artistic Statement

I am a media artist, formally educated at the Berlin University of the Arts with an emphasis on Painting and New Media.

In my recent works, I examine forms and expressions of exploration, collaboration, and communication. I am fascinated by space technologies, mirrors, and questions of visibility and observation.

I combine traditional aesthetics, materials, and techniques with emerging technologies such as 3D-printing to create installations and objects that are often interactive and engaging. The interactions vary from the more obvious to the arcane. I build ephemeral solutions for site-specific requirements, as well as autonomous pieces.

I am co-founder and board member of Lacuna Lab e.V., an artist-run association, collaborative community, and space in Kreuzberg, Berlin, working at the intersection of arts, science, and technology.

I have presented at ISEA in Hong Kong, Vorspiel / transmediale & CTM and Retune festival Berlin. I was involved in projects at Nationalgalerie im Hamburger Bahnhof, Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin and Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona, Spain, and talked for example in Martin-Gropius-Bau Berlin.
