The International Image Festival is an event of electronic arts and digital culture organized by the Visual Design Department at the Universidad de Caldas in Colombia since 1997. This year, the Festival will host ISEA2017, one of the most important symposiums on Electronic Art in the world, and for the first time will be held in a Latin American country.

At the same time, the Festival will be part of selected cultural events in the ’Crusade Season France-Colombia’ initiative, led by the French Institute and the Ministry of Culture.

In this space, you’ll find the reunited programming for the 16th International Image Festival and ISEA 2017. This app enables you to create your own schedule for attending certain events during the Festival.

In this talk, I present the use of space curves as a fundamental construct for audiovisual composition. Curves provide an attractive starting point for audiovisual synthesis as they provide a natural translation between sound and graphics. Systems for producing curves for art, design, and scientific inquiry date back to at least the 18th century and we see similar constructs persisting across mechanical, electronic, and digital technologies. Digital technologies break with the past by allowing precise, interactive control of these curves that allows a much tighter perceptual-computational feedback loop. Contemporary uses of space curves will be presented through my own audiovisual compositions and collaborative projects including the recent "Mutator VR" virtual reality experience that dips the user into a multitude of procedurally-generated sci-fi alien worlds.
