Jeremiah Diephuis and his students in the Interactive Media program at the Upper Austria University of Applied Sciences’ Hagenberg Campus are reliable providers of content for Deep Space—in 8K too. The Game Changer Suite game collection has already mobilized lots of visitors to the Ars Electronica Center.
What does it really feel like to race down a narrow gravel road at speeds of up to 150 km/h? For a dealer conference held by carmaker ŠKODA, the Ars Electronica Futurelab produced an action-packed 3-D video that’s now being screened for Ars Electronica Center visitors in Deep Space 8K.
For more than half a millennium the altar of St. Wolfgang expresses the latest highlights of medieval art creation before the Reformation. Now the Linz photographer Florian Voggeneder has made a high-resolution gigapixel of the Pacher-Altar. In Deep Space LIVE theologian Dr. Michael Zugmann and art historian Dr. Lothar Schultes presented the details of this outstanding altar.
A “FutureWorkshop” [Zukunftswerkstatt] was staged for the fifth time at the Ars Electronica Center this week. One of the participants was 20-year-old Hilal Celepci, who was attending this program designed to foster unemployed young people for the second time. Here, she gives us a behind-the-scenes look at FutureWorkshop.
Archaeologists are increasingly using laser scanning technology, as shown in the example of the Upper Austrian Provincial Museum in collaboration with EF Tech. It allows to capture historical places and buildings as three-dimensional objects and thus to preserve them for posterity.
Conventional image formats are definitively too undersized – the Austrian photographer Johann Steininger is specialized in wide panoramas where the viewing angles range up to 360 degrees. Now he presents a collection of them in the Deep Space 8K at the Ars Electronica Center.
Nick Ervinck is a master of 3D printing. In an interview with Ars Electronica he talks about the sources of inspiration for his organic and surreal sculptures and why he is so fascinated about 3D printing.
It turns out that you can peer into a person’s heart after all! The latest visualizations by the Fraunhofer Institute for Medical Image Computing (MEVIS) make it possible to see what goes on in our blood vessels and understand what’s happening.
New perspectives, inspiring connections and a better understanding of contexts. Artists of the exhibition “Elements of Art and Science” talk about what they expect from the linking of both areas.
At the conference “Unite 2015″ in Boston, the team of the Ars Electronica Futurelab presented the “Human Bodies: The Universe Within” project, which was realized with the development environment “Unity”.
Cinematic Rendering takes 3-D depictions of the human body to the next level of image quality. This project, which was developed by Siemens Healthcare and is now being shown in Deep Space 8K, is a vivid example of how science too can benefit from artistic impetus.
“Urfixed Light Animation” is a fascinating stop-motion video featuring hectic light-painting backed by a high-energy soundtrack. It shows Linz’s semiannual Urfahr Fair from a totally new perspective.
We are all astronauts. The new exhibition “Spaceship Earth” at the Ars Electronica Center in collaboration with the ESA is dedicated to the fascinating and revealing satellite images of our planet.
Sharper pictures, brighter colors and starker contrast are in store for visitors to Deep Space 8K. On August 7th Deep Space 8K premiered and guests immerse themselves in these extraordinary realms of imagery for the first time.
The Naked Verity project, realized by Spanish artists for the Ars Electronica Festival 2015, uses memory, interaction and light, and composite and manufactured parts to express feelings and thoughts about technological art at the festival.
Sharper pictures, brighter colors, starker contrast—with 8 brand-new high-performance projectors beaming images onto the wall and floor, Deep Space 8K in the Ars Electronica Center sets a new standard for high-definition visuals. Ton+Bild installed the projectors that makes it happen. This interview goes into the technical details.
To take full advantage of the breathtaking clarity in the new Deep Space 8K, the 8K resolution at 120 Hz and in stereo 3-D, it’s not enough to simply upgrade the hardware. The content to be presented also has to have what it takes to deliver the ultimate visual experience to audience members.
In Deep Space 8K, visitors can look forward to breathtaking visuals in 8K resolution on 16×9-meter projection surfaces on the wall and the floor. And processing the resulting flow of data — an awesome 23 gigabytes/second in real time — demands a special high-performance processor.
From August 7, 2015 the images in the Deep Space will be projected in 8K resolution. 8K means pictures in impressive sharpness and color intensity. The renovations to the Deep Space 8K are already in full swing.
“What are you doing with my data?” is a question that Malte Spitz, German Green Party politician and internet expert, has been posing for years. Recently he spoke about this issue at a Deep Space LIVE event in the Ars Electronica Center.
The kids attending the Kindergarten of the Future this year selected Ute Krause’s “Wann gehen die wieder?” [When Are They Finally Going to Leave?] for a project entitled Linz Picture Book Kindergartens and thus dealt with issues having to do with patchwork families.
