In the Deep Space at the Ars Electronica Center in Linz, Austria, the perception of familiar sights will undergo a radical shift. Our visitors are amazed by previously hidden details revealed by perspectives that are impossible in the real world. The technological
heart of Deep Space consists of eight 1080p HD- and Active Stereo-capable Barco Galaxy NH12 projectors. The images are projected onto two mammoth 16x9-meter displays mounted on the wall as well as on the floor. A great vantage-point view and a dizzying shift of perspective are available from the Deep Space Platform set up at an altitude of about five meters.
The technology installed in Deep Spce allows it to produce uniform displays with a resolution measuring 2,160 pixels high and 3,840 pixel wide. By using edge blending, the images projected next to each other on the wall and floor can be merged together pixel by pixel until the areas of overlapping are ultimately undetectable. The spectrum of projects on display in Deep Space ranges from artistic works that utilize a wide array of graphic techniques and approaches all the way to interactive storytelling, from architectural
and art historical visualizations to images shot by state-of-the-art cameras positioned in outer space.
