Realizing projects for a society that is constantly changing
Based on its research, the Ars Electronica Futurelab realizes projects for the public, together with various cooperation partners from the fields of business, culture, research, and education. Putting the human being and its interaction with technology at the center of its research, all of the Ars Electronica Futurelab’s projects are in a sense a mirror of today’s society’s trends. This approach allows for a constant change of and reflection on different topics — an approach that is made visible in this regularly updated list of projects most recently concluded:
Deepening innovative research
Besides its own and commissioned projects, the Ars Electronica Futurelab receives public funding for the realization of projects as a recognized, non-university research institution. This intensive collaboration with other research and educational institutions expands the Ars Electronica Futurelab’s own possibilities and makes it an important link between the fields of innovation and research.
A broad range of activities and services offered to a broad range of collaborators
From designing interactive exhibition concepts and media architecture installations, over consulting innovation processes and future visions in the fields of mobility and media, to creating immersive environments and catalyzing civic engagement — the Ars Electronica Futurelab offers a broad range of activities and services for its collaboration partners. The following are selected projects visualizing the Ars Electronica Futurelab’s expertise in the area of project conception and realization.
Achievements in the history of the future
Since 1996, the Ars Electronica Futurelab has been initiating, developing, participating in and carrying out projects — more than 300, to be specific. This Project Archive is not only a documentation of the Ars Electronica Futurelab’s work and collaborations, but also a powerful tool that reflects societal change regarding the interaction with and acceptance of technology over the course of almost 25 years.
