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.

Conceived as a peaceful and playful exploration of the interstellar space, the augmented reality soundscape installation – “Interstellar: Cross-Scale Space- Scapes” invites the audience to access the experiential dimension of space technologies and how the huge amount of data derived from space exploration can be accessed, processed and visualized. Walking through a softly illuminated room where a few transparent cables come from the ceiling having small augmented reality markers in its extremities, holding an ipad mini one will find him/herself immersed in a soundscape populated with 3D animated models derived from actual nanoscale stardust particles’ images. The soundscape, or the soundtrack for navigating this Augmented Reality interstellar space, is made up of a combination of sounds derived from images of stardust particles in nano scale available in online databases taken (its pixels) as rawdata for sonification projects. Both the exercise of designing the 3D representations for the Augmented Reality application from original nano scale image samples of stardust particles and the sonification projects, are part of an interventionist creative practice where different strategies for editing and data visualization were explored, producing data-environments as informational sensorial experiences – somehow touching the untouchable space between the stars
