geist.xyz, a different kind of fashion project: what looks at first glance as an eccentric tangle of simulated dance and a color coordinated tumblr exploration turns out to be a study of handcrafted algorithmic textiles and procedural surfaces presented in and for what we call exquisite realities.

A synthetic ghost shifts simulated textiles from passive matter to live organisms. They behave like apparitions in an artificial choreography, with movements that are imaginary yet familiar. Like a constant metamorphosis, the same sequence gets transformed over and over again. At each step, all aspects of the designs are modified, from algorithmic pattern to color scheme to fabric behaviour. The results are meandering layers of style changes.
All conceptual, design and production work: ZEITGUISED Sound track: “geist.xyz” by Superimposed Void
I worked on the design of materials/shaders, composition of some of the shots, design of some of the characters, animation of some of the character movements and rendering. I also designed the geist.xyz website.
