Guillermo Federico Heinze

<Comment to the award>

"It is a honor to receive the award, I am very thankful and happy about it!

I want to mention my respect and gratitude to Peter Schuster, Martina Mrongovius, August Muth, Yaling Huang, Fred Unterseher, Sam Moree, Dieter Jung, Amy Rush, Julius Schmiedel, Dave Battin, Jason Sapan, Andrew Pepper, David Pizzanelli Jonathan Ross, Jörg Althoff and to my Mother, since they supported and believed in me, helping me to learn, understand and create holograms. My deepest wish is to keep making art holograms and teaching this amazing media to the next generations and some day be able to support and help other artists that are interested in using holography as a media for their work.
I also want to thank the HODIC members for their openness and kindness, to have chosen my holographic work and give me this great feeling of recognition. It is extremely inspiring for me. Thank you."

yShort biographyz

Guillermo Federico Heinze was born 1978 in Neuquén, in the south of Argentina. As a small child he visited a small holography art exhibition, where holograms fascinated him so deeply that he could not stop wishing to make holograms himself one day.
On his way to holography, he studied from 1998 film and television in the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, in the north of Argentina until he moved in 2001 to Cologne, Germany.
Later in 2004, after learning German he studied at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne, where he specialized in holography under the professorship of Prof. Dieter Jung.
2005 he became friends with Amy Rush and Dr. Martina Mrongovius, two Australian holography artists, who inspired him very much.
In 2008 he was invited to an artist in residency in South Korea by Prof. Juyong Lee to make one of his projects. He had his first solo exhibition in Cologne in 2009.
In 2011 he joined with Amy Rush and Julius Schmiedel, to become 3D-CAPSICUM
Under this umbrella, they work together as visual artists making laser, light and video installations at different locations with a common interest to combine light producing technical equipment in new ways, to express their artistic view and comprehension of how light interacts with the environment and peopleLs minds and feelings.
2012 Heinze met DCG Legend August Muth, who kindly invited him to the Light Foundry in Santa Fe, New Mexico, to learn how to make DCG holograms. He also took part of a artist in residency program by the Holocenter of the arts, to make a pulse laser hologram in the Ohio State University under the support and supervision of Harris Kagan and Sam Moree. In December that year he was invited by Prof. Yaling Huang to teach holography at the Kun Shan University in Taiwan, where he also exhibited some of his work at the HODIC 2012 and gave a conference about it.
Actually he is finishing his studies in Cologne, to go back to North America, to work and learn with his friend and Mentor August Muth.
Guillermo's dream is to live his life making holograms, by making more art holograms and teaching holography and helping other artists to get into the field, to learn how to use this amazing media for a higher consciousness.
