“Europe in Sight” - Multimedial Infrastructure and Installations at “The Sound of Europe”

“Europe in Sight” - Multimedial Infrastructure and Installations at “The Sound of Europe”
There are two types of multimedial features installed at "The Sound of Europe" conference:
First of all, there’s the custom-designed, nine-screen media display with a total projection area of about 160 m² in the Europasaal, the main hall of Salzburg’s Congress Center; secondly, there are interactive media installations in front of and inside the conference venue, as well as several media art interventions that are an integral part of the conference’s scheduled program and directly relate to the issues on which the proceedings will focus.

These projects were developed by the Ars Electronica Futurelab in close collaboration with the conference’s planning staff: Klaus Wölfer, Ingrid Friedrich and Heidemarie Meissnitzer from the Austrian Federal Chancellery.
