Frederik de Wilde - the blackest black in the world - H.R. Giger would have loved this

worried that your black just isn't black enough?

imagine Chur Switzerland's legendary H.R. Giger-themed bar repainted in THIS MATERIAL... the blackest black in the world, made up of carbon nanotubes grown on a titanium core.



ART is the poetics of the imagination – SCIENCE is the poetics of realityFrederik De Wilde acts on the border area between science, technology and art. The conceptual crux of his artistic praxis are the notions of the intangible, inaudible, invisible. It is this interstitial territory that Frederik De Wilde explores in his various works. Sometimes on the side of the technological, and often in the perceptual, conceptual, social—human—register, De Wilde’s art is grounded in the interaction between complex systems, both biological and technological. Moreover, the indistinct, diffuse, ‘fuzzy’ arena where the biological and the technological overlap and commingle is a productive and favored ground for his projects/ projections. [source DE WILDE]
