EXPLORE CONVERGENCE CULTURE
Miami Emerging Technology & Arts (META) is an open-share collective on a mission to connect Miami’s brightest minds.
We bring together Makers, Activists, Architects, Engineers, Designers & Artists in South Florida into a collaborative series of creative projects and special events.
It is our aim to foster increased civic engagement and enable creative collaboration. Along the way we hope to inspire and educate anyone who joins us in the journey.
Our projects traverse the uncharted territory where creativity, technology and activism intersect.
MIAMI TOOL LIBRARY (2017)
The Miami Tool Library aims to empower the local community with the tools to create and repair at a fair cost. Membership would be priced affordably, and workshops would be hosted to educate locals about ways and means for transforming their neighborhoods, and their lives.
Engage Your Desires (2016)
Crafted as the Main Event for the Opening Gala of Filmgate Interactive conference in 2016, This project was a subversive event that portrayed itself as a sponsored corporate party, but was in fact much more.
In reality, it was an immersive experiential dystopian madhouse with projection of appropriated public information on the Internet, with costumed performers, drones, projection mapping, VR mischief, Subliminal messaging, eavesdropping hackers, militarized police clowns and more.
Think Timothy Leary (Leary’s Circumplex), Click-Bait, Privacy, Snowden, social media and the NSA.
THE MIAMI PARKLET PROJECT (2015)
A Parklet is a Parking Spot (for cars) that has been converted into a Park (for humans).
The Miami Parklet Project wants to put them all over the Greater Miami Area.
THE RED HERRING PROJECT (2015)
The Red Herring Project is a network of videochat terminals spread throughout Miami. While the frontend provides live 2-way audio and video streaming and recording that is free to the public, the backend generates a swarm of encrypted signals to distract the NSA from reading your emails.
2017 Saw Unprecedented Growth in CryptoCurrency markets, and also a chilling series of natural disasters.
We aim to address one by using the other.

Design + Technology + Creativity
We are a Creative Agency - we are designers, artists, technologists; creatives in every sense, and we believe that when what we do is truly good, it is knowable in much the same way as dark matter. It's not any one thing, but you know it when you experience it. We pull things together - people, artists, projects, ideas, experiences, things that matter; this is what we get to do every day, and we love it.
