Deep Space: Sensation & Immersion was an exhibition of contemporary art that utilised screen technologies. It included the work of international and Australian artists, each of whom were interested in the notions of space, time, movement and the journey.

The title of the exhibition Deep Space: Sensation & Immersion referred to a set of spatial journeys that have been realised through media such as light, video, film and digital media.

In many of the works, the viewer encountered art through sight, touch, sound, voice and physical movement. The audience was invited to immerse themselves in the wonder of the spaces, to explore their physical construction, their digital presence, their filmic pulse and their saturated expanses of colour and light.

This exhibition of Australian and international works was developed out of an earlier exhibition entitled Space Odysseys: Sensation & Immersion held at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, in 2001. Deep Space combined many of the installations from the original exhibition along with films and videos from ACMI's collection.

Exploring space, light, time and the journey, the works presented as part of Deep Space were seen in the screen gallery, on the public imaging screens throughout the building and in the cinema program.

Deep Space was curated by Victoria Lynn, Director Creative Development at ACMI.

The design, brand and identity for Deep Space: Sensation & Immersion was developed and supported by Asprey Di Donato.
