The ultra thin geometry aesthetic is (in my opinion) one of the biggest aesthetics of 2020. The goal is to meld straight geometric lines with natural curvy lines to create amazing shapes. They are meant to mix an ethereal feeling with a feeling of stability. It’s like observing what happens when you make metal into smoke.
This kind of aesthetic is best achieved digitally, which I think is amazing for a year like 2020 where we have access to both computer generated and hand generated lines. This kind of aesthetic is seen mostly in tech design but I have also seen it used to create beautiful artwork for concert posters.

I agree that ultra thin geometries are aesthetic. I never thought it is actually a thing. Adding to what you said, I think it gives whatever picture mixed with these lines a very beautiful and cool 3D effect. I have seen some of these lines in delusional images and I think they are all aesthetic. Do you think this technique would be more aesthetic if it was simple or more complex?
I think that the aesthetic works better when things are more complex. A lot of tiny lines looks more interesting imo than just a few lines.
This aesthetic is pretty awesome. I never really considered looking into it until now… It seems like a really cool way to depict sound or give depth to anything. It’s fun to explore it digital but it would be cool to translate it into a physical piece with actual strings.
