Invisible Štiavnica - newest media workshop is a project aimed at integrating the newest technologies into the arts in public space. The workshop takes place in the Slovak historic town of Banská Štiavnica, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The workshop builds on the platform/game Invisible Štiavnica (Neviditeľná Štiavnica), which enables the installation and implementation of arts in the streets and in various public places in the historical centre of the town. The question of how far one can go within public space gave rise to a specialized workshop, focusing on the spheres of technological experiment, virtual and broadened reality as well as other digital interactive performances. The workshop is attended by visual performers, art programmers, and video mappers selected from the ranks of experienced university students and young professionals in the given areas. The theme or topic is different for every year, but the main idea remains: bringing together art, technology and people in the public space.
The 2013 workshop was focused on the area of game art (creating of site specific artistic games).
