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.

PLANNED PROCEDURE | “Rapchiy” - Enquiry Into Brain Readers´ Hidden Designs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

With “Rapchiy” the ISEA participants/audiences – or people in the mentioned public space - will have the opportunity to engage with brain reading devices and in particular contribute to the revelation of the hidden designs that were subconsciously integrated in their conceptualization and fabrication by the initial device developers/makers.

In the course of embodied research with brainactivity reading technology, particular aesthetic properties emerge whilst altering the topological stance: reducing the 3D typical use of the neurodevice to a flat surface constellation. Departing from that observation, hidden designs are sought for in the entanglement of human head, neurosignal detecting machine and paper in between. They are revealed by following the contours of the device with the help of a pen and vegetal ink.


The 2D drawings can be transformed again into 3D with the help of scanning and 3D printers (ceramics or wood/PLA filament). Depending on the availability.
