With its three-dimensional projections on the wall and floor, the Deep Space 8K in the Ars Electronica Center never ceases to amaze visitors. The combination of laser technology and ultra-modern 3D glasses makes it possible to travel virtual worlds in unbelievable detail – and not just alone, but in groups, with friends, with the school class.
Welcome to Planet B
An interactive decision-making game for Deep Space 8K, in which groups of visitors try to reduce CO₂ emissions and achieve climate goals by making dilemma decisions.
The Great Pyramid in 3D
The Great Pyramid in 3D, From the BBC Series Ancient Invisible Cities explores possibilities of virtual archaeology by scanning and digitally rebuilding historical architecture – in this case, the Great Pyramid of Giza.
The virtual reconstruction of the synagogue in Linz
As part of his diploma thesis, René Mathe has set the goal of virtual reconstruction of the synagogue in order to make it accessible to today's view. His work is the basis for the 3-D visualization by the Ars Electronica Futurelab, which allows a virtual tour through the Linz Synagogue in the Deep Space 8K.
Railway Bridge Linz
Dive into the 3-D visualization of the railway bridge and learn interesting facts about research, technology and history of steel construction.
Singing Sand 2.0
Grains of sand resembling visual particles are sonified by mapping their individual velocities to various parameters of individual grains inside a custom-made granular synthesizer. Velocities also determine the color of the particles, which together create a spectrum of colors and sounds.
Prima Materia – a stereoscopic audiovisual journey
Alchemical authors have compared the “prima materia” to everything. To male and female, to the hermaphroditic monster, to heaven and earth, to body and spirit, chaos, microcosm, and the confused mass. It contains in itself all colors and potentially all metals. There is nothing more wonderful in the world, for it begets itself, conceives itself, and gives birth to itself.
Enjoy interactive flights in 3-D through the entire known universe in breathtaking images and experience the dimensions of space like never before.
ŠKODA Rallye 3-D
What does it really feel like to race down a narrow gravel road at speeds of up to 150 km/h? For a dealer conference held by carmaker ŠKODA, the Ars Electronica Futurelab produced an action-packed 3-D video that’s now being screened for Ars Electronica Center visitors in Deep Space 8K.
The colorful spectrum includes the ancient Maya city of Tikal in Guatemala, the cathedral of Beauvais, France, the cliff dwellings of Mesa Verde National Park in the U.S., and St. Sebald, a medieval church in Nuremberg, Germany.
