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.

The artwork seeks to create a peaceful space where we can explore the nature of our universal connection through shared genetic code. DNA is the technology of life, and the piece utilizes modern technology to express our biological code in novel, accessible ways. By transforming the raw DNA sequence data for a set of individuals into music, and sampling a single chromosome from each person to create the final composition, our individuality and collective connectedness are simultaneously celebrated.

The stone circle becomes a comfortable womb in which the participants can experience and reflect on the beauty of existence and the core connection we have to each other, with the projected visuals from above making the participants themselves a central component of the artwork while they explore the space. The tactile and multi-sensory nature of the piece reveals what is otherwise abstract in a visceral and universal way that is hoped to inspire discussion and profound wonder... and above all, bring us together.
