Ein virtueller Ausflug durch die Erlebniswelten des Millennium Dome.

The Ars Electronica Center Linz was invited by the Land Design Co. to get involved as a consulting partner for the PlayZone exhibition area. The Ars Electronica Center Linz not only recruited artists to work on this project; as the proprietor of the Museum of the Future, it also brought in its own know-how in the field of exhibition technology—especially with respect to dealing with new technologies and digital media in the context of conceptualizing the exhibition and in the exhibits themselves. The Ars Electronica Futurelab was also responsible for two installations on site.
