Divorced from Reality
a scratch film by Sam Heydt
How will history judge us? As desertification and extreme weather patterns delimitates habitable and uninhabitable zones, it is clear that the earth can’t eternally withstand the strain of the industrialized world. Over the past several centuries, humanity has raked the land of its resources, threatening the balance of the natural world. The nature of the earnings that define late capitalism have incidentally raped us of nature itself. In the space of post-history, all grand narratives dissipate, as we back sedated by the flickering screen and the false promises it proposes for the future it truncates.

Faena Bazaar is pleased to announce the opening of 'Caged Canary', a solo exhibition by social practice + recycled media artist Sam Heydt.
Illusion won’t save us from reality, even as the sustained narrative of tabloids becomes history and the myth of progress continues to perpetuate inequality. Yet, these portents are drowned out by the white noise of the media, which lure us in with the empty promises it proposes for the future it truncates. Combining images of destruction with portrayals of the virtues born from the American dream, Heydt confronts its disillusionment with the ecological nightmare it is responsible for.

Miden is an independent organization for the exploration and promotion of video art. Founded by an independent group of Greek artists in 2005, it has been one of the earliest specialized video-art festivals in Greece and builded an international festival identity, presenting an annual video art festival for a decade. Since 2015, Miden continues its work changing its form to a more flexible and broadened event programming, setting as basic aims to stimulate the creation of original video art, to help spread it and develop relevant research.
Through collaborations and exchanges with major international festivals and organizations, it has been recognized as one of the most successful and interesting video art platforms internationally and as an important cultural exchange point for Greek and international video art. It also provides an alternative meeting point for emerging and established artists and a communication hub between artists, organizations, festivals and art spaces around the world.
Miden screening programs have traveled in many cities of Greece and all over the world, and they are hosted by significant festivals, museums and institutions globally.
