Joyce Hinterding lives and works in the Blue Mountains NSW, Australia. Her practice is internationally renowned for exploring the broader concept of Energy through extensive fieldwork and research into acoustic and electromagnetic phenomena with custom-built field recording and monitoring technologies. These sculptural receiving and listening systems and experimental graphite drawings are dynamic energy scavenging entities based on VLF (Very Low frequency) antenna. She often collaborates with artist David Haines to produce large scale immersive video and real-time interactive 3d environments. Their experimental audio works have been released by Antiopic and can be found on Bandcamp. Joyce is represented by Sarah Cottier Gallery, Sydney and lectures at the University of Sydney, Sydney College of the Arts.
She has exhibited extensively nationally and internationally, including the 23rd Biennale of Sydney Rīvus 2022 and the 2002 and 1992 Sydney Biennales. In 2015 her collaborative work with David Haines was featured by the MCA in the survey exhibition Energies Haines & Hinterding, and in 2016, they produced an extensive monograph exhibition titled Résonances Magnétiques - La Panacée, Montpellier, France. In 2019, Joyce was awarded the Australia Council Emerging & Experimental Arts Award.
