Current Projects

Mar-Jun 2020

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 working on developing a new 3D printed sculptural work by Berlin-based artist, Isaac Chong Wai for an exhibition at the Asia Society Hong Kong opening in April 2020.

In February we were in Melbourne to conduct a 2-day Art Hack exploring motion-capture and 3D animation at the Interaction Design Lab at the University of Melbourne on 27-28th Feb. Artistic Director of MetaObjects, Ashley Lee Wong spoke on a panel in the Digital Environments Forum at 7pm on 27th Feb at Malaysia Theatre, School of Design, University of Melbourne. MetaObjects will also be presenting a live motion-capture performance with Lu Yang in Federation Square as part of Asia TOPA (Asia-Pacific Triennial of Performing Arts) on 6th March 2020. [Note: Due to the recent coronavirus travel restrictions on visitors from China, Lu Yang’s performance has been postponed.]

MetaObjects has a new studio space in Cheung Sha Wan, Kowloon. Look out for more news and updates on our Facebook page.
