from looking at Den Zeitgeist Gestalten (the Design of the Spirit of Time or the idea of a tool for achieving this) if we delete the article Den, then we change this from its strict meaning into a beam of wider possible meanings, tending towards the idea of the Design of the Spirit of the Experience.

Z_G (Zeitgeist Gestalten) is an online application that allows the user to experience any website with in a visually poetic way.

the intuitive interface of this software contains at the upper right a field for inserting URL addresses and two colour palettes (for setting foreground and background colours).

when a web address is inserted and confirmed, Z_G reads the page corresponding to the given web address (which appears in the main screen for a few seconds) and outsets a filtered version of the web page, without any semantic content, yet filled with poetic meaning.

the colour setting palettes at the upper right part of Z_G allow the customization of your experience in real time.

Z_G also offers a time based experience, as you browse through the links within your Z_Ged page (they exist wherever the cursor becomes a hand).

this project was produced in 2007 as a proposal for Direccao-Geral das Artes | Ministerio da Cultura, in Portugal
