this issue is not accessible on small screens at the moment (we are currently working on it - it will re-launch as a responsive website soon!!).
in the meantime, please access this website from a bigger device to fully enjoy the digital journey ;)
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 theme of its 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,
FOUNDER + WEB DESIGN
