In Mirage – An Interactive Experience, Deep Space 8K visitors find themselves in an alien world, where they collectively partake in a story appealing to multiple senses. Up to 16 persons can actively participate in this encounter.
In this abstract-looking world, visitors must find hidden pathways to a portal through teamwork, solve puzzles cooperatively and avoid manifold hazards. The interactive possibilities of the experience can be explored by the participants through play and without explanation – the focus is on joint discovery.
The elaborately designed 3D graphics and adaptive soundtrack make full use of the extraordinary possibilities of DeepSpace 8K, so that the participants are completely immersed in the experience.
Mirage was developed and implemented during a project semester of the Bachelor Media Technology Course at the University of Applied Sciences St.Pölten.
Visiting the Deep Space presentations is only possible with a pre-booked ticket. Tickets are available at the Ars Electronica Center’s infodesk and can only be booked for the respective time slot of the museum visit ticket.
