The new Ars Electronica Center
“The new Ars Electronica Center is a one-of-a-kind facility. Its uniqueness is betokened by its external form. This bold architectural statement is an instant highlight within the Linz cityscapeâ€™s ensemble, yet it still sets itself apart at firstâ€”none of its edges run parallel, everything appears skewed, elements simultaneously pulling apart and merging together. A structure thatâ€™s constantly assuming new forms depending on the perspective from which itâ€™s viewed. And one that withholds revelation of its scope and dimensions until the moment of direct physical encounter.
“More than 5000m2 of glass facade covering the new Ars Electronica Center was assembled with 1,100 LED light strips (RGBW – Red, Green, Blue and White High Power LED`s) . Each of the approximately 4,400 channels (depending 4 Channel light bar) is individually adressable and adjustable between 0-100%. Imagery from patterns to homogeneous color surfaces are possible.”
