Beings by Universal Everything

Town: Melbourne

Address: ACMI Flinders Street, Melbourne, 3004, VIC

Exhibition and Shows

A playful, interactive exhibition for all ages. Meet a colourful cast of characters – and move, dance and play to bring them to life!

Projected larger than life, Universal Everything’s parade of fantastical creatures morph in real-time, responding in unique ways with each interaction. The more you move, the more animated they become.

Made of digital fur, lava, bubbles, vapour and more, these wiggly, jiggly beings are powered by game engines, VFX software and ever-evolving algorithms. No two visits to this exhibition are the same.

For over 20 years, UK-based art and design collective Universal Everything has been creating mesmerising works. They are fascinated by ‘soulful technology’ inspired by nature, human figures and emotions.

Beneath the high-end visual effects, their creative process begins with simple hand-drawn sketches. Displayed alongside the artworks for the first time, these drawings reveal the imagination and craft behind the technology.

An ACMI-curated world premiere, including four new works, Beings is Universal Everything’s largest international exhibition to date.
