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.



Enjoy the Deep Space 8K to the fullest extent: gigapixel photographs, lapse videos, historical sites in 3-D, images from inside the human and games to join are repeatedly presented. Because of the diverse opportunities in Deep Space 8K a presentation is never like another! Here you can find the Deep Space program:


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:


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:
