He is an artist known for the creation of innovative installations that active throughout the viewer's eyes. He studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Denmark and joined the Städelschule art school in Frankfurt.

Hein's sculptures and installations combine functional elements with the traditions of minimalism and conceptual art of the 1970s. By using materials such as mirrors, balloons and benches, Hein invites viewers to activate the public space. In the words of the artist: "I want to show that the work is nothing by itself, it is the public that forms it. The active role of the viewer is what makes the piece the center of attention."
