Welcome to the Metaverse world
Metaverse = Create + Play + Display + Social + Trade
Snow Crash, the novel written by the American writer Neil Stephenson, provides a vision for future life. Over time, we can live in a metaverse world, a virtual world parallel to the real one. Perhaps in the future, each of us will have our own “Second Life”, as many people yearn for the future world in the movie Ready Player One or the game Cyberpunk 2077.
IM META, or Metaverse Immersive, aims to pay tribute to Snow Crash. The exhibition presents a large-scale robotic device named META, an EEG human-brain interactive device, combining aerosol, lighting, projection, full-screen display of art works, allowing audience to fully experience the electronic display of art works.
It uses motion graphics in an immersive manner, realizing “immersive-ness”, “low latency” and “anywhere-ness”, the three key characteristics to Metaverse concept. OmArt chose Shanghai Plaza to feature its first offline exhibition. The plaza’s positioning that fosters “social, vision, and playfulness”, enables IM META to showcase artistic diversity with a cross-cultural collision, and provide unlimited opportunities for artistic integration.
