Current & Upcoming

MetaObjects is excited to be working a new ambitious motion capture performance as a collaboration with dancers in Sydney and Hong Kong interacting in a shared virtual environment. The work Doku, The Binary World will explore binaries of heaven and hell, human and animal in a networked performance between Hong Kong's Freespace, West Kowloon Cultural District and Sydney Opera House from 7-9 Oct 2022. Join us for a panel discussion Beyond Binaries: Digital Performance in a Post-COVID Era on 28 Sept, 7-9pm HKT at online and at Eaton HK. There will be a free demonstration workshop at Freespace on 8 Oct.

Artistic Director of MetaObjects, Ashley Lee Wong has published a journal article in Screen Bodies, The Journal of Embodiment, Media Arts, and Technology, Iss. 1 Vol. 7 discussing Lu Yang's live motion capture performances and perspectives on artistic practice, Buddhism and digital culture.

We are working on new AR filters for the upcoming Pipilotti Rist exhibition at Tai Kwun (3 Aug-27 Nov 2022). We will also present an AR workshop to local educators to demonstrate the possibilites of using AR for artistic works.

MetaObjects is participating as a mentor for C/O Digital Berlin. Working with artists in the incubator programme: Keiken, Debbie Ding and Ayoung Kim, MetaObjects will be supporting the development of new artworks exploring games and virtural environments that present New Values as the theme.

The Ensembl DAO, conceptualised together with Mao Mollona and Samson Young is featured in the book, Radical Friends: Decentralised Autonomous Organisations and the Arts, published by Torque Editions.

An interview with MetaObjects by Emily Verla Bovino has been published in Ocula magazine. Read the interview ›
