How can you collaborate with artists and cultural institutions to expand the possibilities of art, through technology?
MetaObjects is a studio based in Hong Kong and London that aims to facilitate digital production with artists and cultural institutions. Working across VR, AR, 3D printing, motion-capture, audiovisual production, software and web development, MetaObjects seeks to encourage the sharing of knowledge of new digital tools and processes.
In this forum, the MetaObjects founders will share insights gained through their work with artists, particularly Samson Young (Hong Kong) and Lu Yang (Shanghai). They will present their process as a studio specially catering to working with artists and the cultural institutions. MetaObjects will discuss some of the challenges and aims of the studio, and open their creative and technical process through discussion of projects engaged with technologies such as motion-capture, 3D printing, games, robotics and sound, and VR.
MetaObjects has worked with artists including Samson Young, Lu Yang, Wang Xin, and Wong Kit Yi; and cultural institutions including M+ West Kowloon Cultural District, Tai Kwun Centre for Art and Heritage, K11 Art Foundation, de Sarthe Gallery, Asia Society Hong Kong, Para Site Art Centre, Rockbund Art Museum, University of Salford Art Collection, and others. www.metaobjects.org
