A new project from creative studio Zeitguised sees printed textiles dance, creating the strange impression that mounds of cloth have a life of their own as they shuffle through otherwise sparse environments.The platform, geist.xyz, shows textiles animated through a series of algorithms that simulate dance routines, wiggles, strange undulations and twirls. The fabrics, which according to the site have a “synthetic ecstatic aesthetic” are all based on the same four colours – olive, rose, mauve and electric blue, which are constantly modified as the patterns, colour scheme and fabric behaviours shift.
Described as “a different kind of fashion project”, geist.xyz makes for a brilliant interpretation of the studio’s interests in synthetic art and design and their potential applications.
