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.

Floating Painting explores visitors’ passive role as a portrait model in interactive art. This visualizes the process of drawing a painting over a long time just as drawing a real portrait painting. A webcam scans a visitor’s face into an 18-by- 32 pixilated image, and the LED canvas emits one color pixel of the image per three hundred milliseconds in order, then the webcam simultaneously re-photographs the LED colors on the canvas. Next, viewers can see the drawing process that illustrates the face on the wall. Unlike most interactive art projects with real-time closed-circuit video systems, in Floating Painting, visitors as passive models experience temps mort, or dead time to see their slow portraits, and to rethink their role in interactive art.
