“Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears, even if the thread of their discourse is secret, their rules are absurd, their perspectives deceitful, and everything conceals something else.”
"Invisible Cities" collection is inspired by the fantastical places
Marco Polo describes to the great Kublai Khan in the chapters of the book.
These places don't exist on any map, and in these cities, things are never as they seem.
This is the case in those intricate, three- dimensional patterns,
generated using an algorithm.
We are fascinated by the unending possibilities of the pattern formations,
and we aimed to match each chapter's descriptions to a 3d pattern.
Using spherical patterns, allowed the formation of city-planets,
where every little computationally generated sculpture, represents an imaginary, unexisting, invisible city.
Choose your favorite city, and print it in a pendant or ring.
“Olinda grows in concentric circles,
In its reduced dimensions retains the features of the first Olinda
and of all the Olindas that have blossomed one from the other;
and within this innermost circle there are always blossoming -- though it is hard to discern them --
the next Olinda and those that will grow after it.”
