Press Releases: Ars Electronica Futurelab

Research & Development: The Futurelab was launched in 1996 to serve as both an atelier and laboratory in equal measure. Ever since, this facility has been Ars Electronica’s artistic-scientific think tank and the driving force behind our R&D work. The staff develops innovative prototypes and future scenarios that are meant as both points of departure for discussions and invitations to take part in a wide-ranging discourse on topics of great future relevance. The Ars Electronica Futurelab works with partners worldwide—firms in industrial sectors and the creative economy, individuals and organizations in the art world, and academic & educational institutions.
