Universal Everything’s upcoming solo exhibition at ACMI (Melbourne, Australia), Beings, invites visitors to interact with coded characters that respond differently to each visitor. Using evolving algorithms and generative technology, the characters grow and change in real time in response to the movements of individual visitors. The work plays with glossy, polished forms inspired by the human figure, human emotion, and nature, forming a bespoke aesthetic that is uniquely UE.

The exhibition includes 13 works, 4 of which are being debuted. Additionally, it will feature, for the first time, a glimpse into the UE’s creative process, including hand-drawn sketches shown alongside the finished works.

For nearly twenty years, Universal Everything (UE) has been creating vibrant, captivating visual experiences for audiences worldwide. Using emerging display technologies as their canvas, the studio creates digital experiences that subvert cinematic CGI, physics simulations and real-time generative design to create new forms of moving image, interaction and immersive spaces.
