Deep Space LIVE: The Last Supper
Thursday, April 17, 2014 / 8 PM / Ars Electronica Center
(Linz, April 14, 2014) The next Deep Space LIVE this Thursday, April 17th at 8 PM will offer visitors an extraordinary opportunity to take a close-up look at two of the world’s most famous paintings. Art historian Lothar Schultes of the Oberösterreichisches Landesmuseum will provide fascinating insights into Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper and The Passion of Christ by Gaudenzio Ferrari. Then, he’ll show these images in jumbo format using Deep Space’s high-definition projection technology that brings to light details which normally can’t be seen with the naked eye.
And at the AEC this coming weekend, April 19-20th, visitors—both the young and young-at-heart—can enjoy traditional fun with a high-tech twist: painting Easter eggs via a machine that can execute the design you create!

The Ars Electronica Center is now hosting a Deep Space LIVE event every Thursday (except holidays) at 8 PM.
