Deep Space

Deep Space 8K

A sensational, internationally unique experience awaits visitors to the Ars Electronica Center since August 2015. A 16 by 9 meters wall and 16 by 9 meters floor projection, laser tracking and 3-D animations were the specialities of the Deep Space since 2009. An all-out upgrade of the venue’s technical infrastructure of the Deep Space will enable audiences to enjoy projections at 8K resolution and thus worlds of imagery at a never-before-achieved level of quality! Full HD and 4K—that’s yesterday’s news. 8K is what’s happening now, and that standard is set by the latest update to Deep Space at the Ars Electronica Center. A visit to Deep Space 8K promises to be extraordinary, fascinating, impressive, breathtaking.
