Deep Space 8K at the Ars Electronica Center makes it possible to travel in a matter of seconds to the farthest reaches of space, to the most distant galaxies, and then immediately land back on Earth to dive inside the human body and discover ultrahigh-resolution projections of anatomical CT and MRI data.
During this themed weekend, we will explore our solar system to learn why life can evolve on Earth in the first place, view the complex anatomical structure of Homo Sapiens on the 16 x 9 meter projection screen on the wall and floor, and look at how the human organism works.
Deep Space Family – Astronomy for kids
On a child-friendly journey through our solar system, we explore the planets and stars and consider the question of what life would be like on alien planets.
Deep Space Selection
Deep Space Selection shows you the best projects of the last 13 years from media art, science, technology, interaction and action. Even already known projects shine in the retreaded Deep Space in an unprecedented quality and color brilliance and complement the range of brand new applications.
Earth – A special planet
Earth is an extraordinary place. What makes it a world where over eight million species of living things can not only survive, but thrive? Learn about Earth’s many special features: from its powerful protective shields, to its vibrant interior – to its perfect location in our home galaxy of the Milky Way.
Uniview: A grandiose journey through space and time
The tour through the universe is more exciting and grandiose than ever! The latest version of Uniview takes us to new, unknown destinations: to the James Webb Space Telescope with its special orbit, we see a pulsar with dizzying rotation or a black hole with realistic gravitational lensing effect and much more. We can even pay a visit to planets from alien star systems. Join us on a journey through space and time!
This is where virtual reality technology and medical science come together to display anatomical information stereoscopically and with unprecedented depth of field. Experience the beauty of the human body as you’ve never seen it before! We immerse ourselves in ultra-high resolution projections of anatomical CT and MRI data and see how sophisticated and aesthetic the inside of the human body is.
