With an ultra-high definition of 7680 × 4320 pixels, 8K can express and visualize amazing details, provide new knowledge and extends the awareness of our society. It brings out emotions and empathy in a very powerful way. Scientists and artists are using this cutting-edge technology to not just visualize data but to express their ideas in ways that resonate with our environment. Experiences, memories and stories within this hyper-realistic world, make us feel as if we were directly on the spot.
Resonant Media – Possibilities of 8K Visualization is the title of an exhibition that explores the innovative potential of 8K technology, making the invisible visible and swinging into people’s hearts at the boundary between art and technology and society. Ars Electronica Futurelab and NHK invite to extraordinary high-resolution insights into future visions of one of today’s most advanced technologies. As an alternative to visiting the exhibition on site in Tokyo, the project will also be broadcast to the world via Ars Electronica Home Delivery live from Deep Space in Linz on March 23, 11 am.
The Berlin-based artist duo Quadrature (Juliane Götz and Sebastian Neitsch), Data Visualization Specialist Masaki Yamabe (JP), Senior Producer Mika Kanaya (NHK, JP) and Roland Haring, Director of the Ars Electronica Futurelab, will embark on a virtual journey to Japan – moderated by Yoko Shimizu, Artist & Researcher in the Ars Electronica Futurelab. Following the presentation of various artistic-scientific approaches connected to the 8K technology and insights into the exhibition, experts invite to a panel discussion, to reflect and discuss the impact of 8K.
