New Ars Electronica Center


Recently launched, the new Ars Electronica Center was designed by Treusch Architecture, an austrian-based studio. It features 38500 LEDs divided through 1100 glass panels. The RGB lights can be fully programmed using a different array of tools (eg. Max/MSP, Processing, VVVV), and the building also has built-in SMS capabilities. For the opening of the festival, artists Zachary Lieberman and Daito Manabe were invited to present a 10-minute show, and students and developers can also pre-test their work using an environment developed by the Ars Electronica Futurelab. The video shown above is a visualization made by Ingrid Stürmer based on bacteria patterns.
