Sensorium Festival, Bratislava

A number of MAST teaching staff and students engaged in the Sensorium Festival on “The Augmented Mind” 7-9 June 2019 in Bratislava, Slovakia . The festival was managed by the MAST & Unicult alumni and stipend recipient from July 2018 (First test pilot of Intensive Learning Event in Rijeka/Cres, Croatia), Lucia Dubačova ). At the festival Chris Csikszentmihalyi of the MAST consortium (MITI, Portugal) held a keynote, while pETER Purg (UNG, Slovenia) chaired a panel on “Education in Digital Arts & Culture — How, whom and why to grow within Art, Science and Technology?“. Another teacher of MAST (TUG, Austria)  Nayari Castillo participated as artist in the Sensorium Festival Workshop Augmented Attention Lab that she visited with other artists, where she worked alongside Jatun Risba (Slovenia/UK), an emerging artist in the A-S-T and an alumni of the MAST March-2019 Intensive Learning Event in Nova Gorica, Slovenia. The festival thus built a partnership with the Pixxelpoint festival of contemporary art practices 2019 that will (15-23.11.2019) in Nova Gorica, Slovenia, next to a MAST symposium, and a MAST workshop, hold a round table on “Minifestivals”, at which Lucia will naturally be a welcome guest! The festival also held an “Industry Meetup” that brainstormed with 30 artists, engineers and scientists (Chris, pETER and Naya among them) around the future of art-based innovation — and this is what it came up with:
