Media Spaces & Generative Art

This year marks the 10th anniversary of FH Hagenberg students working together with the Ars Electronica Futurelab on semester projects in which they creatively explore their approaches to interactive and generative arts. Uniquely, these projects are realized in media spaces like the Deep Space 8K that present a very special challenge in themselves.

Four projects have been selected to represents this year’s student works. Escape is a short generative animation that utilizes the voronoi algorithm to tell a story. Samsara is a procedural audio-controlled processing installation that cumulates in an intense overall experience. Breaking Circle deals with the peculiarities of a circle that develops its own life in a uniquely composed soundscape and Under the surface tells the story of the deep emotions in a very drastic moment of life and death.

This project was part of the Open Futurelab at the Ars Electronica Festival 2023.
