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 Pillflower Project consists of scanned images of pills and tablets, digitally manipulated into flowerlike Mandelas, as well as actual medicinal pills physically assembled into miniature flower sculptures. These two and three dimensional pillflowers are then used to decorate both functional and sculptural work to create a veritable pillflower world. The Pillflower App is a gamification of the project where the user can grow, gather, play with, dream with and gift the pillflower designs. The grow function allows user to challenge themselves to recreate pillflowers. The gather function leads to collecting all 200 plus pillflowers that have been designed. The play option allows users to interact with their collection of pillflowers rearranging them, expanding and contracting the individual designs as well as multiplying them. The dream function is a relaxing mechanism in which a meditative Mandela of gently changing pillflowers loops along with music of the user’s choosing. Finally the gift function allows users to superimpose their collection of pillflowers on real world photos and then gift them to others. The app is simple to use with humble aspirations.
