Geist

2022

About

Geist is a visual manifestation of a million thoughts on the verge of petrification. A mental shard. A rendered artefact of an indefinitely continuing battle between burning out and fading away. The overwhelming complexity of 100.000 polygons and procedural displacement mimicking pearlescent calcium carbonate directly correlate with the often futile process of overthinking. Ultimately Geist is the metaphorical beacon leading to the final conclusion - there is beauty in breakdown.

History

Germany based Nicolas Arnold is an art director by day and anti disciplinary digital artist by night. With more than a decade of experience in motion graphics, photography and visual effects and an experimental do-it-yourself ethos rooting in the digital art community of the early 2000s he is always aiming for the thin line between the obvious and the cryptic.
