Samantha "Sam" Heydt (born April 20, 1986) is an American social practice and recycled media artist.[2][3]

Life and work[edit]

Heydt was born and raised in New York City by the artist William Heydt.[4]

After attending La Sorbonne, Cooper Union, University of Amsterdam, and University of Buenos Aires, ultimately earning a Bachelor of Arts in Communications, as well as a degree in Photography from Parsons New School for Design graduating summa cum laude.[5][6][7]

In 2012, Heydt launched Jane Street Studio,[8] a photo-studio in the Meatpacking district of Manhattan.[9] The company has since expanded its focus from photography to design consultation and video work.[10]

Heydt has undertaken non-profit work for developing countries,[11] including the 2014 production, Bulbul: Song of the Nightingale, a feature-length documentary that sheds light on the longstanding tradition of child prostitution in the Banchara tribe of Madhya Pradesh, India.[12]

Heydt has lived and worked in Paris, Venice, Amsterdam, Athens, Sydney, Udaipur and currently resides in Vienna.[13] With a background as a political activist and environmentalist, Heydt's work continuously examines different phenomenologies of our hyper-mediated society wherein "tabloids become history".[14] Her interest lies in semiology's role in the mutability of history, disillusionment of the social psyche and exploitation of a world increasingly reduced to a bottom line.[15][16][17][18]

Heydt's work is exhibited internationally and sits in the permanent collection of a number of notable museums, including the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia.[19]
