Museum of the Future - Ars Electronica Center

In Linz, the state capital of Upper Austria, Ars Electronica Center wows its visitors with unique exhibitions covering art, technology and science as well as their impact on society and on our daily lives. These are the themes in this interactive museum.

Art technology, society. Since 1979, Ars Electronica has been researching connections and comonalities, causes and effects. The ideas that are dealt with here are innovative, radical and eccentric in the best sense of the world. They influence our routine and our lives every day.

The exhibitions undergo constant change. Touching is not forbidden, but expressly desired. The museum's motto ist: try out, join in and think about it!

The museum of the future deals with crossovers from various directions in art, science and technology. Biotechnology and genetic engineering, neurology, virtual worlds and media art are giving equal standing to form experimental designs in which we can try out how we might interact with our environment and other people tomorrow and what these changes mean for our society.

Ars Electronica offers an extensive methodological toolkit for observing our everyday from a variety of different perspectives – with a focus on participation and interaction with the exhibits.

Deep Space 8K

This unique room for high-resolution projections on a 16 by 9 metre surface on wall and floor offers the additional possibility for presenting stereoscopic 3D images, 3D films and interactive 3D real-time graphics. A sophisticated person locating system determines the positions of the people moving in the room. Full body interaction is needed to solve giant puzzles or for hunting fish on the floor projection.

The high-resolution applications also give visitors the opportunity to learn more about the anatomy of the human body.
