Exquisite Realities (0% organic)
ZEITGUISED is an award-winning multidisciplinary studio producing exquisite realities- at the intersection where digital art and design cross physical space. With its conceptual approach to formal poetry, ZEITGUISED has been influencing synthetic realism in image-making since 2001, when Jamie Raap and Henrik Mauler founded the studio in Chicago with an urban design project on poetry through algorithms, manifested in VR and 3D printing. After growing the studio in Stuttgart and London until 2009, the studio is now based in Berlin.
The ZEITGUISED universe spans digital animism, poetry of material and shape, hallucinatory narratives of inanimate objects, outlandish characters, artificial behaviour patterns, perpetual dynamic systems, physical objects designed by algorithms, and synthetic prosthetics crafted for post-humans.
ZEITGUISED collaborates globally with galleries, collectors, museums and art embracing brands in exhibitions, installations, performances, events, design development, lectures, concept workshops and forward trend reflections.
