Anyone looking for a taste of the future and who’d like to visit the Ars Electronica Center today rather than tomorrow can breathe a sigh of relief. From now on, Ars Electronica is offering a delivery service! “Ars Electronica Home Delivery” will be sending a range of elaborately composed future visions directly to your living room, kitchen, kids’ room, balcony, or terrace. We’re offering a weekly program that includes guided tours of Ars Electronica exhibitions, excursions to the Ars Electronica Labs, visits to the Machine Learning Studio, concerts with real-time visualizations, Deep Space LIVE sessions, workshops with engineers, and talks with artists and scientists from all over the world. None of this will be pre-recorded, most of it will be interactive, and all of it will be LIVE. An initial two-week test phase is starting on Friday, May 1, 2020, with a concert from the Ars Electronica Center’s “Piano Room”: Maki Namekawa and Dennis Russell Davies will play Ma Mère L’Oye for piano four hands by Maurice Ravel, with Cori O’Lan contributing real-time visualizations. You can experience this and all the other Ars Electronica Home Delivery events live at ars.electronica.art/homedelivery and also watch them again afterwards here.
