The Sinaloa Science Center in Culiacan is one of the most important centres for science and technology education in northern Mexico. After 25 years of operation, the building has now been renovated, redesigned and the exhibition concept completely revised.
With the vision of creating an immersive environment for contemporary knowledge transfer in various dimensions of emotional, sensory and physical learning, “Deep Space 8K” was to be integrated as one of the main attractions in the new science centre.
Ars Electronica Solutions was commissioned to create an immersive and interactive presentation space with wall and floor projections. As with previous Deep Space projects, Garamantis was involved in the project from the very beginning.

Content includes interactive particle clouds, gigapixel images and artistic 3D worlds. Deep Space went live for testing in December 2019 after five project phases (workshop, consulting report, planning, implementation and rollout, and staff training). The grand public opening followed in January 2020.
