(Linz, April 26, 2019) From Salvator Mundi and the Mona Lisa to anatomical studies and technical designs: Leonardo da Vinci was not only a gifted painter, but also an enthusiastic tinkerer and inventor. On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death, art historian Dr. Lothar Schultes will present the multifaceted work of this universal genius in high-resolution pictures at Deep Space LIVE on the May 2. An exciting evening in which legends, myths and speculations about the life of da Vinci are not neglected.

The future meets the past
Georadar and geomagnetics, thermal imaging cameras and laser scanners, diving robots, camera drones and satellites – new technologies have left no stone unturned in archaeology and art history. This applies to research practice as well as to the presentation of the results. Today, laser scans, gigapixel images and virtual reconstructions offer a broad public the opportunity to immerse themselves in long-forgotten epochs. This is especially true for the Deep Space 8K.

Deep Space LIVE
The Ars Electronica Center hosts a Deep Space LIVE event every Thursday (except holidays) at 7 PM. Each presentation features ultra-high-definition imagery in 16×9-meter format and is accompanied by expert commentary, entertaining stand-up repartee, or musical improvisation. Whether great works from the history of art, space travel, journeys of discovery in the nano-world or a live concert is what you’ve come to behold, Deep Space LIVE stands for enlightening entertainment amidst breathtaking worlds of imagery.
