Mikovina B.Štiavnica) and high art schools (Academy of Arts BB, VŠMU Bratislava) from the fields of digital art, new media art, performance art, video art and photography.

The Light Festival "Illumination" changed in June 2016 to the historical center of Banská Štiavnica night. On June 18, the former mining center and botanical garden from the middle of the 19th century on a razed light city transformed into one night after a nightingale. The festival was held with the creative support of students of art schools and artists using modern imaging and projection technologies to create a unique visual experience. The program also enriched the exhibition, or local BLUR photoclub, which prepared Camero obscuru in the premises of the Cultural Center.
There is a process that leads to the origin of an artwork. Mostly it is called the process of creation. It is the activity performed by an artist and it leads to the goal, an artwork. The process of creation is inherently comprised in any artwork, the exhibition In Process, however, attempts to distinguish the creation and its result. Many artists often recollect that the road to the goal and the origin of their artwork are more important than the artwork itself. The exhibition In Process is guided by this idea.
There is a path that precedes the creation of a single art. Mostly, this process is called formation or creation process. It is an activity of artists, creators, reaching some goal. The result is an art as such, in any form or format. The process of creation is an integral part of the work. Despite of this fact the concept of this exhibition called “The process” aims to separate the process of creating of the output.
