Around Christmas time, TRAKT realized a creative output using digital technologies in the area of Trenčín. The Christmas composition took place in the epicentre Peace Square after dark on the 22nd and 23rd of December 2018. The audio-visual abstract composition is the exploration of artistic activities in the field of video-research and digital projection, which TRAKT civil society has been realizing regularly since 2009.
Video mapping with Christmas content was created especially on the reconstructed facade of the Piarist Church (Roman Catholic Church of St. Francis Xavier). The church is the dominant of the western part of Peace Square and rightly belongs to the most beautiful sacred baroque monuments in Slovakia. The Trenčín church is characterized by a two-tower facade, just like the Vienna University Church and the Trnava University Church. Our unconventional project used the main front as well as the significant audience potential during the city’s Christmas markets. The project is part of ArtLAB. It supported the Arts Fund and the city of Trenčín from the public sources.
