METAVERSES CHA-CHA-CHA dance party
How can we take back the narrative of the metaverse, which companies like Facebook are trying to co-opt and own? The metaverse, often described as ‘persistent, shared, 3D virtual spaces’, doesn’t quite yet exist, but that hasn’t stopped big companies from trying to capitalise on it. It’s this moment, when the metaverse is just coming into being, that opens up space for us to bring in our own ideas of the metaverse and shape our own ‘metaverses’—embracing multiplicity and rejecting a singular definition.
During the METAVERSES CHA-CHA-CHA dance party you’ll dance your way into a new reality. Meet us at MU Hybrid Art House at Torenallee 40-06 in Eindhoven on Thursday October 27 from 19.30. Or join us online and release your virtual dancer on screen.👯♂️🕺🏽🥳
Expect several metaverse experiments (and experiences!). AR-guru Sander Veenhof will present three of his latest hybrid AR experiments and creative coder Babusi Nyoni is the architect of our dancing metaverses. DJ Vir the Sir will be joining on the decks and weaving together the soundtrack for the night.
During the dance party you look best on the dance floor with your own avatar. Did you miss one of the avatar workshops we organised on 10 and 11 October? No problem! In this manual we tell you step by step how to create your avatar, so you can join the experiment. Don’t forget to upload it to our server before Tuesday, 25 October!
