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.

The project is a site-specific composition. The performance space and its architectural resonating characteristics are included. The main idea focuses on the body of a dancer as the main sonic source. The sound recordings of two performances in San Francisco and Switzerland were then composed at NOTAM in Oslo Norway, leading to a piece intended to be played in the dark and thus magnifiying the sonic memories of the audience. The project includes fifteen days field recordings at the border of Botswana, Limpopo Region, South Africa with a biologist and composer (Francisco Lopez). I conducted the research further as an expedition in other regions of South Africa on the base of a text of the Swiss writer Friedrich Dürrenmatt (The Viral Epidemic). The novel was published originally in the column of a Swiss newspaper, which describes a virus transforming the body of white persons into black ones. A text about privileges and how those are kept in a specific context. I explored the country with the text in mind and observed the division after the end of the apartheid. The composition includes layers of cut-up text, pictures, video and sound composed into a an electroacoustic piece, like a road movie.
