BIO & EXHIBITIONS

 

ZEITGUISED is an award winning studio producing exquisite realities, at the intersection where digital art and design cross physical space. With their conceptual approach to formal poetry hey have been influencing synthetic image making since 2001, when Jamie Raap and Henrik Mauler founded the studio with a project encompassing VR and 3D printing. Their universe of digital animism is inhabited by character like abstractions, where hallucinative narratives of shape, color and behaviours make inanimate objects come to life.

After Chicago, Stuttgart and London, ZEITGUISED is now based in Berlin and branched out with a commercial service studio called foam. Apart from continuing to explore digital design work the studio started a series called "intersections". It is home to original independent solo projects and artist collaborations in the material world of “phygital” objects.

Right from the beginning, thanks to an innovative and experimental approach to new technologies, the group’s work has been featured in a number of art fairs and festivals dedicated to new media, such as Onedotzero, Dotmov, Nemo, ITFS and Resfest, and has received numerous awards: nominated for two consecutive Media Art Awards at the ZKM 
in Karlsruhe (2001 and 2002), the group was given the prize for the best musical video at the International Cinema Festival of Oberhausen (2005), and in the same year, the Best Design Award at the Resfest. This was followed, in 2009, by the prize for the best experimental work
at the Ottawa International Animation Festival and, in 2010, Zeitguised was shortlisted for the experimental section of the Vimeo Festival + Awards in New York; the group also won two Laus awards (2014 and 2015), and was given two mentions of honour at Ars Electronica (Linz); in 2016, the group was awarded the Best Experimental and Best VFX prizes at the Berlin Fashion Film Festival, and bronze from the Ciclope Festival in Berlin. Zeitguised’s works have been displayed in museums and art events throughout the world, most notably Volta Art Fair New York, La Gaîte Lyrique in Paris, Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Haus der Elektronischen Künste in Basel and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona.
