ZEITGUISED is a digital art practice spanning its own work space between virtual and physical, abstract and figurative, generative and manufactured, high brow and low fi.

ZEITGUISEDs focus on virtual prosthetics for physical space is seeking to corrupt the tropes of vandalism with digital means.

In an International Art English nutshell, the deliberation goes like this: erase the distinction between synthetic authenticism and authentic syntheticism in one gesture.

Pairing digital abstractions with photorealistic depictions of spatial installations with The Zoo (2004) and Peripetics (2008) ZEITGUISED started a genre that is now dominating the realm of Instagram artists and NFT art alike.

ZEITGUISED is the brainchild of Henrik Mauler (b. 1974 in Dresden, Germany). In 1986, he programmed his first generative line art in BASIC on a TO7-70, in 1987 he made his first abstract 3D rendering on an Amiga 500. After graduating in architecture and design with an award winning installation encompassing VR (CAVE), 3D print and animated film in 2001, together with Jamie Raap, they founded the art and design studio as a digital experimentation lab. The label has also been a umbrella for collaborations with international artists and designers.
After an asisstant professorship at Stuttgart University, he has been lecturing and teaching in workshops internationally.
