Immersive Sounds – External Worlds
Anton Bruckner Private University, Linz (AT)
Since 2016, Anton Bruckner Private University has been hosting the Sonic Saturday symposium and concert as part of the Ars Electronica Festival. For this year’s festival we will organize a research student meeting to allow for an informal, hands-on, in-person exchange of ideas of artistic researchers working in the field of immersive audio.
University of Art and Design Linz (AT)
Just as neighboring nations can develop separate cultures — in part due to forces of nature that separate them such as rivers and mountains — so art and science often present themselves as if divided into two different cultures and languages. Paradoxically, the construction of bridges, as well as other vehicles intended to facilitate communication between different cultures, were projects originally assigned to artist-scientists. But just as bridges can be built, so can they be destroyed. And indeed, up to this day it seems that there are still too many bridges to be built, as well as others more fragile that need to be reinforced.
JKU LIT @ Ars Electronica Exhibition
Linz Institute of Technology (AT)
To interweave art and science more sustainably, to strive for an open transfer of knowledge with society and to promote a concept of technology that puts people at the centre. This is not only the common goal of the Johannes Kepler University and Ars Electronica, but also the focus of this exhibition, which brings together current projects of the Linz Institute of Technology (LIT).

Von schwarzen Schwänen …
Kunstuniversität Linz (AT)
… or pink doves? The Ars Electronica Festival’s Kunstunicampus attempts to think the seemingly impossible, to vision the unthinkable. Above all, the aim is to enable images and metaphors that carry a creative power within them and inspire us to create our own picture of our world.
