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.

The Googled Sculpture Series explores this concept of crowdsourced object presence by examining the three most popularly searched sculptures in western art history. Using only tourist photos culled from Google image search results for “Venus de Milo”, “Michelangelo David” and “Rodin Thinker”, flawed and incomplete likenesses are stitched together in photogrammetry software, rendered and 3D printed. The resulting jagged and mottled figure is a physical manifestation of web presence. Areas of high and low resolution speak to the focal points and perspectives frequently captured by visitors to icons of western sculpture.
