This work collides two realities into a singular space, both real and unreal. In relation to time, the events illustrated can or are occurring simultaneously albeit geographically estranged. After all, we are in the epoch of simultaneity, of juxtaposition, of colliding spacio-temporalities. Conflating time and place, the layered imagery merges and disrupts logical relationships between occurrences presenting multiple histories and narratives within a singular frame or iteration. Combining images of destruction with portrayals of the virtues born from the American Dream, Heydt confronts the disillusionment of our time with the ecological and existential nightmare it is responsible for.
