Das international renommierte Ars Electronica Futurelab, die hauseigene Forschungs- und Entwicklungsabteilung der Ars Electronica, entwirft durch ihre wissenschaftlich-künstlerischen Konzeptionen mögliche Zukunftsszenarien. In der Vortragsreihe „Future Life“ sprechen MitarbeiterInnen des Futurelab über ihre aktuellen Forschungsschwerpunkte und verraten spannende Visionen, die in Zukunft unser Alltag sein könnten.

What is cosmic art? How cosmos and art are interconnected? From the ancient heritage to the on-going art project today, this talk will introduce a series of cosmic art pieces, not only on the earth but also in outer space. It may give you a new perspective, how you see the universe.
