Building the Galleries of the Future

Tuesday, March 15
11:00AM - 12:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Next Stage
531 E 4th St


Heritage sites are a significant part of our collective memory and we are losing them at an alarming rate. 3D laser scanning and other advanced technologies allow us to preserve and experience these incredible places in a way previously impossible.

CyArk operates internationally as a non-profit organization with the mission of using new technologies to create a free, 3D library of the world's cultural heritage sites. Deep Space 8K at the Ars Electronica now lets visitors see virtual reconstructions of historical sites in 3D and walk through them in the truest sense of the word.

Together we are building the museum of the future.
