Part of our mission is to increase the diversity on our platform and give early access to our technology to creators and dancers in underserved communities. The best way to do that is to collaborate with creative minds that have been pushing the boundaries in the intersection of technology, embodiment and art and see how they use Meu. Please welcome the our first two art grant receivers:
Victoria (left) and Josh (right)

They have a vast amount of experience running gaming conventions and events, full stack software engineering, XR design and development, fashion design, fabrication, graphic design, illustration/animation, video editing, music production, and acting/dancing/modeling. They worked on both seasons of Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s HITRECORD on TV which won the 2014 Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media, was one of the first Mixed Reality performance artists in the world collaborating with UploadVR in 2016, has developed and locally demonstrated several apps around the Bay Area, and is currently the Virtual Events XR Developer at DNA Lounge helping produce live streamed productions featuring their AR projection mapped art installations.

He iscurrently taking his Masters in Fine Arts in KASK. Josh's work deals with questions about identity, transmigration, queer politics, states of being and ways of inhabiting the body. He is also interested in the duality between the physical formand its representation and has created art around the influence of technology on our identity. Josh will be exploring Meu as a performance tool and a way to create new interactive media that connects to wider audiences.

We can't think of a better collaborators to help us explore Meu and bring its potential to wider audiences. Our grant receivers will also be providing us feedback and suggestions that will help in the future development of Meu. We are super excited to see what they comes up with.
We are looking to collaborate with a few more exceptional creators who will receive up to 1000$ of grant money. If you are interested please try out Meu: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/meu-3d/id1512896380 and comment or message us with an idea you'd like to explore.
