Deep Space 8K


Price: included in the ticket price
Information: Short term program changes are possible

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.

Best of Deep Space 8K (with Cinematic Rendering)

SAT and SUN, 4 PM–4:30 PM
Thanks to the technical possibilities offered by the new Deep Space 8K, visitors to the Ars Electronica Center Linz enter a unique virtual anatomy theater of the future. With “Cinematic Rendering” 3-D representations of the human body are raised to a new level. The project of Siemens Healthcare is a clear example how science can benefit of artistic impulses.

Cultural Heritage

SAT and SUN, 4:30 PM–5 PM
There are several crews equipped with 3D laser technology traveling the world to scan in statues, buildings or entire architectural ensembles and thus preserve these priceless cultural treasures for posterity. The results of these efforts are huge quantities of points—so-called point clouds—that can be displayed as three-dimensional visualizations. Deep Space 8K now lets visitors behold virtual reconstructions of historical sites in 3D and walk through them in the truest sense of the word.

Kulturelles Erbe

Best of Deep Space 8K (with Uniview)

SAT and SUN, 5 PM–5:30 PM
The night sky has always fascinated mankind when have you last looked at the stars? Thanks to the architecture of the Deep Space 8K far galaxies come close enough to grasp. Make a colorful visual journey through the universe in this unique presentation room and enjoy views that we would have never seen without the support of technological aids.



The Deep Space 8K impresses with such a wealth of program opportunities that they can not be savored in the everyday museum life. Therefore, there are the Deep-Space-Weekends, which are each dedicated to a specific subject:

Deep Space LIVE

The Ars Electronica Center is hosting a Deep Space LIVE event every Thursday (except holidays) at 8 PM. Each presentation will feature ultra-high-definition imagery in 16×9-meter format and will be accompanied by expert commentary, entertaining stand-up repartee, and musical improvisation:
