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.

Interactive Performances for Dance, Sound and Biosignals

This workshop will focus on understanding the meaning and possibilities of different physiological signals (biosignals) and the technologies available to measure them. We will demonstrate the use of different biosensors and discuss the creative methods used in our work at Emovere project, which focuses on developing interactive dance performances that utilize biosignals to amplify, understand and connect with the internal functions of the human body. We use physiological signals such as electromyography (EMG), electrocardiography (ECG) and electrodermal activity (EDA) as materials that access an intimate and – usually – inaccessible biological dimension that is in constant change, affected by external and internal stimuli.

 The workshop will explore the rationale behind interaction designs, compositional techniques and outcomes of different artistic pieces that utilize biosignals in performance scenarios. Participants will join in a co-creative experience using their heart rate and speech with the objective of creating a collaborative sound environment that builds on explorations around sound poetry and biofeedback.
