Immerse yourself in the newly adapted Deep Space 8K, the unique 3D experience space at the Ars Electronica Center, with its 16-by-9-meter wall projection, equally large floor projection, high-performance laser tracking technology and its fascinating 3D image worlds! With a resolution of 33 million pixels, it provides unprecedented image sharpness and delights with its incredible color brilliance.
This weekend, everything revolves around art in the newly adapted Deep Space 8K: We “travel” to monumental buildings such as the Cheops Pyramid of Giza or Vienna’s St. Stephen’s Cathedral, view works of art by masters such as Gustav Klimt and Pieter Bruegel on the 16×9 m projection surface down to the smallest detail, and create a shared aesthetic spatial experience with the interactive art worlds of the students of the Linz Art University. create a shared aesthetic spatial experience that requires full physical engagement! Experience art as close as never before – from the old masters to contemporary (media) art.
The art of playing
Communication, collaboration and full physical engagement determine the art of playing in the Deep Space 8K. The participants playfully explore what they can trigger and control through their movements, come into contact with the other people in the room and can coordinate their movements with each other or even develop small choreographies together. The interactive works by the students of Time-Based and Interactive Media Art at the Linz Art University are not only an enjoyable group dynamic experience, but also a highly aesthetic spatial experience.
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.
At the heart of the Pyramid of Cheops
With the help of the most modern techniques, we venture a look inside the
inside the Pyramid of Cheops. Like in a computer game, we move through hidden corridors and various chambers and perhaps even discover the Cheops burial chamber?
With its large-scale wall and floor projections and the unique laser tracking system, Deep Space 8K becomes a fascinating experimental field for media artists. Experience art closely and immerse yourself in visually stunning media artworks, some of which have been specially designed for Deep Space 8K. The brilliance of the colors and the great sound transform Deep Space into a unique sound and visualization space for contemporary media art.
The glass dome
The Vienna Stephen’s Cathedral is probably the most famous landmark
of Austria. Everybody knows it. But you have definitely never experienced the “Steffl” as you have never experienced it in Deep Space before: travel through the history of the building, visit places that you would otherwise not be able to enter.
