Second Nature is a series of video loops which show an alternate reality layered on top of our own. During a return to the Alps in the south of Munich where I grew up, I took walks in the forest, filming them from my own point of view and recording ambient sounds.
The video footage was then analyzed and a virtual camera was calculated which reconstructs my movements. Then, working around the path of the camera in space, the environment was created only to cover the field of vision.
The vegetation is an obviously ficticious one, where tropical leaves populate northern European trees. A fern’s structure was misappropriated and given banana leaves. The plants and soil have a dull metallic finish. The POV perspective and gait recognizable in the camerawork shows the influence of first person shooter games, while its enemies and objectives remain absent or unknown. There is no clear narrative or purpose other than the wish to be transported to this world, creating a false memory of a place that does not exist.

Collaboration with Italian Fashion House Ilaria Nistri for their A/W 15/16 collection.

The collaboration between Berlin-based design studio ANF and Italian fashion house Ilaria Nistri for their Autumn/Winter 15/16 collection represents a fusion of high fashion with cutting-edge digital artistry, yielding a unique blend of aesthetics that pushes the boundaries of traditional design. This partnership marked a significant moment in the fashion industry, showcasing how technology and generative designs can create innovative patterns that not only accentuate the human form but also narrate a story of digital evolution within the fabric of high fashion.

ANF, known for its pioneering work in digital design and generative art, brought a fresh perspective to Ilaria Nistri’s sophisticated and avant-garde approach to fashion. The studio’s expertise lies in creating complex patterns and visuals through algorithms and computational processes, a technique that transforms the traditional approach to textile design. For the A/W 15/16 collection, ANF focused on developing black and white generative patterns that were both abstract and deeply intricate, reflecting the collection’s theme of natural elements intersecting with digital realms.

Ilaria Nistri, an Italian fashion house renowned for its exploration of materials, shapes, and the interaction between light and shadow, provided the perfect canvas for ANF’s art. The collaboration was an exploration of contrasts – between the organic and the synthetic, the tangible and the virtual, the traditional and the futuristic. Ilaria Nistri’s designs, known for their fluidity and ethereal qualities, were enhanced by ANF’s generative patterns, adding a layer of complexity and depth that challenged conventional fashion narratives.

The black and white color palette chosen for the generative patterns emphasized the collection’s focus on duality and harmony. Black and white, as fundamental opposites, symbolize the balance between light and darkness, presence and absence, and the interplay between these forces. ANF’s patterns in this monochromatic scheme were not merely decorative but carried within them the essence of dynamism and transformation. The patterns seemed to move and evolve, mirroring the natural processes that inspired them, from the branching of trees to the flow of water, all captured within a digital framework.

The collaboration between ANF and Ilaria Nistri was not only a testament to the possibilities of integrating technology with fashion design but also highlighted the importance of interdisciplinary approaches in pushing creative boundaries. The generative patterns developed for the A/W 15/16 collection were more than just fabric designs; they were a statement on the evolving relationship between humans and technology, and how this synergy can lead to unprecedented forms of beauty and expression.

In conclusion, the collaboration between Berlin-based design studio ANF and Italian fashion house Ilaria Nistri for their A/W 15/16 collection stands as a landmark in the convergence of technology and fashion. It showcases how the use of generative design can bring a new dimension to textile patterns, creating garments that are not only visually stunning but also embody the principles of innovation and sustainability. This partnership has set a precedent for future collaborations between designers and digital artists, suggesting a future where fashion continues to evolve through the integration of new technologies, and where the boundaries between the digital and the physical are further blurred in the quest for new forms of expression and creativity.

The Island Physics - Generative Art
Chris Woebken, Sascha Pohflepp and Andreas Nicolas Fischer will spend their time on Governors Island commissioning a series of computer simulations that will run within a meticulous virtual recreation of Building 15. The individual simulations are being created by a selection of 3D artists who form part of a community that is exploring the aesthetics of simulation in the context of contemporary computer graphics, often disseminating their work on social media rather than in an academic context. These participating artists include: Kai Kostack, Mohamad Zeina, Gottfried Hofmann, Tayfun Ozdemir and Andreas Nicolas Fischer.
