synthetic velvet is a Berlin-based art project and magazine imaginatively exploring the concept of time. It focuses on one specific hour per issue and builds a different website for each edition.

The project uses a multidisciplinary and collaborative approach commissioning artists from diverse disciplines and cultural backgrounds for each issue.

synthetic velvet is a digital love letter to time – it focuses on the hour system to tell universal stories and encourage larger conversations. Its ambition is to push the boundaries of digital storytelling and provide a platform to emerging creatives.

The project was featured on Gestalten's Creative Pool and exhibited as a part of the Vorspiel program organized by digital culture festivals CTM and Transmediale. Upcoming event: synthetic velvet will be exhibited at the VABF in October 2019 in Vancouver.
