Apublished author, producer and lifelong activist, Heydt hasundertaken a range of altruistic, non -profit work. Her art, anchoredin social advocacy, attempts to give a voice to the veiled,forgotten, exiled, and silenced.In her practice, she works across a spectrum of different mediafilm,video, installation, photography, sculpture, sound,merchandize, text — and employs a range of materials oftenreinventing or trespassing their associative use. Heydts’ visionlooks beyond the ordinary. Esteemed as one of the pioneers of therecycled media movement, Heydt’s work has been shown ingalleries, museums, art fairs and film festivals worldwide. The edge is closer than we think, but illusion won’t free us fromreality, even as the sustained narrative of tabloids becomes historyand the myth of progress continues to perpetuate inequality. Asthe natural world is liquidated and substitutes with an artificialone, public discourse is being defined by even narrowerbandwidths. While social processes defy the logic of individualismin global capitalism, the underbelly of profitability fuelingglobalization emerges as exploitation.In a time marked by mass extinction, product fetishism, diminishingresources, and patented seeds, we find ourselves in a worldexploited beyond use, a world increasingly reduced to a bottomline. Concerns for which are drowned out by the white noise of themedia and the empty promises it proposes for the future ittruncates.Working across different media- film, video, installation,photography, sculpture, sound and text, Heydt presents anabstract proposition for a world on the periphery of history, onethat not only appears haunted by the ghosts of the past, but builton it. Heydt’s layered imagery conflate time and place, collidingand merging generations of possibilities, and disrupting logicalrelationships between occurrences. Combining images ofdestruction with portrayals of the virtues born fromthe American Dream, Heydt confronts the disillusionment of ourtime with the ecological and existential nightmare it is responsible for.
