Current & Upcoming

We're working on website for The Next Biennial Should Be Curated by a Machine for the Liverpool Biennial 2021. The project involves developing the UI/UX design for users to navigate machine generated images and text from artworks in the biennial to understand how an algorithm 'thinks'.

On 14 Jun 2021, We presented our work with Lu Yang in the Art Machines 2 symposium at the City University of Hong Kong.

On 30 May 2021, Lu Yang presented a new live streamed motion capture performance, Gigant DOKU: Lu Yang The Destroyer at the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, Moscow. Watch the full recording on the GarageMCA YouTube channel.

We worked with Yarli Allison to create a new AR Instagram filter PRISON? GARDEN! for her installation on display at 55 Squared at Tai Kwun from 18 May-31 Aug 2021.

MetaObjects has been contracted by M+, Hong Kong's new museum of visual culture. Working closely with the M+ team and its commissioned artists, MetaObjects is helping to prepare curatorial content for the M+ Facade, a large-scale LED media facade positioned on the spectacular Hong Kong waterfront. We're also working on a new multi-sensory installation within the museum.
