Sculpture, Performance and Installation
Joyce Hinterding is an artist who exhibits both nationally and internationally and is recognised for her work across a range of discipline areas, including sculpture,
object arts, sound art and digital arts. Originally trained in gold and silver smithing, she worked professionally in the industry while developing an expanded and experimental relationship to the field of object arts. Her postgraduate research into acoustics and musical instrument design led her to do further study in electronics, alchemy and web design, and develop an ongoing learning relationship with the digital and analogue arts, including 3D computer graphics, sound and video. Her work is currently included on the NSW HSC Art Curricula and she often collaborates with artist David Haines to produce large-scale immersive video and sound works. She is represented by Breenspace, Sydney, and her recorded audio work has been released by Antiopic NYC and Sigma Editions.
Hinterding has taught in varying capacities at the three major university art schools in NSW since 1990: UNSW COFA (College of Fine Arts), UWS (School of Contemporary Arts) and currently at USyd SCA. During this time she has designed and taught a range of undergraduate Visual Arts, Object Arts and Media Arts units pitched at varying levels within different discipline areas, and supervised postgraduate research students.
Hinterding’s practice and research opens up the world of objects and materials through physical and virtual dynamics. Her interest in energy and resonance has been a platform for investigating and extending notions of form and function to explore both analogue and digital modes of expression. Working specifically with custom-built field recording and monitoring technologies, her explorations into acoustic and electromagnetic phenomena have produced large sculptural antenna works, video and sound-producing installations and experimental audio works for performance. Her interest in the VLF (Very Low Frequency) part of the radio spectrum is ongoing, and has continued to open up new relationships as spectrum politics and concern for the environment have changed. Her recent investigations into drawings and stencilling have opened up an expanded investigation into graphic antenna, fractal mathematics, and energy scavenging. The art and science axis in her work has placed her in productive dialogue with various scientists and communities from disciplines such as solar research, antenna design and high-energy physics. Her collaborations with artist and SCA Photomedia Lecturer David Haines have produced large-scale immersive video and sound works that explore the tension between the fictive and the phenomenal. These collaborative works have gained international recognition and are continuing to explore the possibilities for 3D visualisation, animation and real-time technologies in the art context.
