FUTURE VISION LAB 2023
In 2020, the Taiwan Contemporary Culture Lab (C-LAB) established the Technology Media Platform which emphasizes on innovative media experimentation and social connections. Its purpose is to construct a cultural and technological experimental platform based on cross-disciplinary collaboration, co-creation, and cooperation to facilitate the integration of Taiwan’s cultural and technological resources while bringing together the cultural and technological sectors for co-creation. One of the labs of the platform features future visions, exploring the visual limits of technology media as its goal of experimentation. Building upon Taiwan’s electro-optical technology and industry, aided by image algorithms and creation, as well as the integration of hardware and software, the project outlines a cross-disciplinary vision for the enhancement of future visual effects.
Since its launch, the Technology Media Platform has consistently developed FUTURE VISION LAB, an experimental exhibition and performance project that engages in building a digital, experimental architectural site in a dome shape to nurture interdisciplinary and experimental talent, providing young Taiwanese artists with a platform to show their content creations and introducing brilliant works from abroad. This project explores the visual limit of technology media. Its development involves multiple and complicated techniques, including image warping, edge blending, mapping, play control, and video pre-production. In the past three years, FUTURE VISION LAB has showcased nearly one hundred works.
This year, with the support of the Ministry of Culture, FUTURE VISION LAB 2023 is able to expand the previous scale and upgrade to “DOME 2.0” by creating a substantially enhanced DOME that continues the diverse and experimental spirit of the project. Using digital architecture, an exterior of the DOME informed by computational characteristics is developed. In terms of size, the new DOME surpasses the previous 12-meter diameter, and is built as a moveable DOME with a diameter of 15 meters and a more enwrapping sound field. At the same time, it also has a new-type projection membrane and an immersive super-resolution audiovisual environment that has a total resolution of 10K. Such a creative environment with specifications that meet the international standard allows the audience to enjoy immersive, sensory content of higher quality all day long, and vividly perceive the creative power of Taiwan.
