INTERNATIONAL ARTIST CALLOUT – MM @ CHINA JOY 2014

DEADLINE: JULY 15 2014

METAVERSE MAKEOVERS is looking for designs from 3D and .gif artists from around the world!

We are looking for cult, new media, cyberpunk, glitch and net artists to submit 3D content to be exhibited via Metaverse Makeovers’ augmented reality technology METAVERSE NAILS.

Metaverse Nails are wearable fashion accessories that are powered by a 3D mobile app. This allows users to experience your 3D designs in real time on their fingertips. It is a completely innovative way to display your designs, allowing them to be WORN, COLLECTED, and SHARED by China’s Post-90s Digital Generation.

MM will be distributing the app for free in July at CHINA JOY, one of the biggest cosplay and gaming events in the world, as well as nail salons across Shanghai and China.

METAVERSE MAKEOVERS in Dazed Digital

 

The future is now: virtual reality cosmetics explode in a gigabyte beauty bomb.

Read our latest interview with Dazed Digital about how Founder/CEO Thea Baumann invented Metaverse Nails appcessories by combining app development, Augmented Reality, gaming, and social networks.

MM takes residence @The Big Apple

Metaverse Makeovers is pleased to unveil our new Melbourne office space at he&eve and the big apple creative industries hub.

Set amongst gorgeous Northcote bushland on the banks of the Merri Creek, the studio is close to several local cafes and is a stone’s throw away from CERES, a much-loved community farm. The MM team is very excited to be working alongside Co-Founders Erin and Henrik Enders, as well as a broad community of creative talents. The new studio space will be a great complement to our existing office at Weiden + Kennedy in Shanghai and we hope this connection will be a conduit to more exciting collaborations in the future between Australia and China.

Meanwhile, MM will be fast-tracking the soft launch of our first generation Metaverse Nails to the market through nail bar partners and online stores. We will be doing a series of shoots in the lofty warehouse space and are looking forward to exploring the creative potentials of the cyclorama (yes you heard that right!) when construction is complete!
