synthetic velvet is an online, creative magazine which explores the concept of time. Each issue takes the form of a website and is themed around one specific hour.
The project is made using a multidisciplinary and collaborative approach: a different group of contributors from diverse disciplines and creative backgrounds produce works for each issue.
synthetic velvet is a digital love letter to time – it focuses on the hour system to tell universal stories, encourage larger conversations, and push the boundaries of digital storytelling.
Since launching, the websites have been exhibited internationally in art & design exhibitions (Vorspiel organized by CTM/Transmediale in Berlin and the Vancouver Art Book Fair in Canada).
The third issue, themed around "the Golden Hour ", is currently in making and will launch in Fall 2020 with a launch party in Berlin!
