BACK TO HOMEPAGE

synthetic velvet is an art and publishing project imaginatively exploring the concept of time by taking a specific hour as a theme.

It uses a multidisciplinary and collaborative approach: artists and creatives from diverse disciplines and cultural backgrounds contribute with works specifically created for the project.

synthetic velvet is a digital love letter to time - it focuses on the hour system to tell universal stories and encourage larger conversations.

-

Launched in December 2018, synthetic velvet was exhibited at the Berlin art space Liebig12 on January 22nd, February 2nd, and 3rd, 2019, in a multidisciplinary installation from the Vorspiel program organized by the digital art and culture festivals Transmediale and CTM.

The theme of this first issue is 5:40 am.

A nebulous zone between two cycles in which boundaries between dream and reality are blurred, 5:40 am is an empty slot where nightmare spams, ancient dichotomies, and intimate reflections emerge at the intersection of night and day.

I watch you sleep as I wake up,
I get ready but fall back again,
I can’t remember, I can just imagine,
Stuck in a limbo, the world of bifurcations,
5:40 am,
Let’s go.
