Minesweeper Bosnia & Herzegovina, 2009

digitally generated interactive art work


Minesweeper is a popular, entertaining logistic game, meant for relaxation. Minesweeper Bosnia&Herzegovina, a digitally generated interactive artwork, works on the same principle as the original game. Shall we lightly play it and click on mysterious fields if we put the game in the context of Bosnia and Herzegovina?


Bosnia and Herzegovina is still the most mine-contaminated country in Europe. It is assumed that 3.2% of the BH territory is still covered with mines. It is estimated that the locations covered with mines influence the safety of over 900.000 people, which puts our country among the most jeopardized in the world, and thus impedes its economic development and safe living environment for its citizens. Since 1996, 1.667 people have been either injured or killed by mines in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Last year there were 39 victims, and 19 of those were killed.
