Get Inspired

“GET INSPIRED – Promising Projects at the Nexus of Art, Technology and Science” was the theme of a showcase of innovative projects based in Linz and Upper Austria staged yesterday by Ars Electronica in cooperation with a regional association of young businesspeople. Join us for a look back at an inspiring evening.

Who make up the next generation of young scientists at JKU? Who are the up-and-coming Upper Austrian researchers who are making an international name for themselves in computer science, chemistry, physics and other technical and scientific fields? And what exactly are they working on? They’re virtually unknown in their homeland, Austria. Now, it’s high time to change that!


Experimenting, testing and understanding. Over 2,000 pupils came to the Ars Electronica Center to present their self-developed experiments to a public audience and to take a look at other experimental set-ups. View our picture gallery of astonished and curious gazes of the participating kids and teenagers!

During the last three decades we have witnessed the growing complexity of technology and a flood that is filling our hospitals today—functional imaging, full gene sequencing, automated laboratory medicine and much more. But the role and responsibility sharing in healthcare has remained almost unchanged despite almost complete digitization. In this Deep Space talk Professor Horst Hahn presents possible future role models and the benefits and dangers of the digital revolution.

The artists collective Quadrature began Part 2 of their art & science residency at the Ars Electronica Futurelab a few days ago. The three artists spent the first part at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Chile in late May. To find out what they experienced, why they found everything there absurd and what they think about habitable exoplanets, read this interview.

Hack the Robot_7

“Hack the Robot” offers pupils in grades 7 & up the opportunity to learn to program robots that are normally used in industrial manufacturing processes. What this actually entails is using electronic modules to construct new remote controls that let users hack into the robotic system.
