In this age of textual and visual information overload, what are new ways to listen carefully and think deeply and slowly about facts and issues, instead of just consuming and reacting to information and news? Artistic Journalism is a special class that Ars Electronica Futurelab director Hideaki Ogawa has been offering for Keio University SFC since 2020, exploring the answer to this question through a variety of experimental lectures. This live lecture is its public lecture, in which the possibility of artistic journalism will be discussed through remote experience of various installations exhibited at Ars Electronica Center.
The theme of the second lecture is “Deep Space”. The Ars Electronica Center has an 8K immersive space called Deep Space, which measures 16 meters in width and 9 meters in height, and is a platform for artistic journalism where physical visitors can experience a variety of themes together. Guests Christoph Kremer, Managing Director of Ars Electronica Center, Nicolas Naveau, researcher at Futurelab, and Nobuyuki Oishi, Sr. Producer, Digital Strategy and Planning Unit of Nikkei Inc., will introduce examples of artistic journalism using Deep Space.
