lives in Brussels (BE) Frederik De Wilde studied fine arts (MA), audio-visual arts(MA) & followed a pre-education in architecture, studied one year of philosophy and concluded his studies with a post-graduate degree in new media, arts & design at TRANSMEDIA (Post Graduate) where he was initiated in software programming.

Furthermore, Frederik studied & worked abroad. For instance at the Johnson Atelier Technical Institute of Sculpture (USA) or as an artist and workshopleader for the Istanbul Museum of Contemporary Art. He collaborated with (Groep-T, new media engineers) at the University Leuven (KUL), the University Brussels (VUB) and the University Hasselt (UH).

This scientific touch is blending in his artistic practice. For example; the project 'Still Things,' a multidisciplinary three-part project in the interstice between installation, performance and visual art. Cryogenic applications where used to stop or at least challenge biological processes and therefore, time itself. Together with art historian Ils Huygens he researched the process of freezing time.

Frederik is regularly commissioned for making video-clips, trailers, soundscapes (The Kaaitheater -NRK, Argos vzw, Radio Klara, ...). Frederik is currently collaborating with the University Hasselt researching material physics & biology.
