An evening with Zeitguised and Nadine Goepfert
Zeitguised started out with an algorithmic design approach that devises a synthetic complexity opposite that of physical structures, resulting in a reality that is both powerful imagination and seductive visual experience, to be mistaken and desired as the “real thing”.
Nadine Goepfert approached the concept from a haptic, tactile design rooted in the physical world and its sensoric reflection in us.
In anticipation of our “phygital” future, pioneering visual studio Zeitguised asked influential conceptual textile artist Nadine Goepfert to produce analogue reflections of their digital textile designs. Her bespoke fabrics reveal connection points that fuse advanced physical and digital design.
The four-hour exhibition presents geist.xyz, a fashion design piece based on Zeitguised’s genuinely synthetic digital process. By exquisitely controlling algorithms and creating procedures they arrive at unexpected formal poetry. The work of Nadine Goepfert connects this purely synthetic approach with the material world.
Nadine Goepferts work is based on research and conceptual thinking and explores the wide field of eventualities by creating open situations, which form the base for textile designs and art installations.
With an eye on detail and an interest in traditional textile techniques and craftsmanship, she constantly experiments with the diverse aspects of the materiality and structure of textiles.
Her research on garments and fashion attempts to reveal our unconscious and unapparent habits in relation to clothing. The research is applied both theoretically and as a base for further material explorations.
Zeitguised is an international collective of artists, designers and technologists in the field of bespoke synthetic visuals and aesthetics. They have backgrounds in Art, Sculpture, Fashion, Architecture, Graphic Design, Photography, Animation and Film. Their design work is mostly time based, i.e. moving images that deal with transformation and interaction between object and environment. Signature style characteristics are realism paired with abstraction, complex materials and exquisite color-shape relations. Through their formal poetry, Zeitguised`s work shows that synthetic simulations can elicit sympathy and non-narrative films yield a multitude of connection points.
