We worked with artist Scott Hessels to create Memorial Birdsongs, an interactive installation enabling audiences to memorialise deceased loved ones by dedicating a bird and bird song to them. The installation was on display at K11 Musea, 8F, Nature Discovery Park from 1-14 October 2023, featured over 50+ speakers around the serene rooftop garden with tributes distributed across the speakers creating a chorus of bird songs. Audiences received a digital artifact of their tribute via download, email or social media.
Our work on the M+ Facade has been featured in the M+ Magazine. Read more in Behind the Screen: The M+ Facade. The facade was awarded the best Animated Media Arcitecture project at the 2023 Media Architecture Awards.
MetaObjects is working on the development of a new virtual exhibition space, V Hall for Tai Kwun Centre for Heritage and Arts. As one of the first online commissions, MetaObjects is creating an online game experience for Lu Yang.
MetaObjects has been contracted by M+, Hong Kong's museum of visual culture. Working closely with the M+ team and its commissioned artists, MetaObjects will help to prepare curatorial content for the M+ Facade, a large-scale LED media facade positioned on the spectacular Hong Kong waterfront.
