Attending this event?

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.

Wake Vortex

Wake Vortex is an ongoing series of generative videos and images built around the idea that digital raster image can be treated as a three-dimensional object and viewed not just frontally but also from any other side. This process can be understood as line-scanning of digital imagery. Viewed orthogonally from the side, the image is perceived as a one-pixel wide line, while orthogonal scanning of a stacked set of video frames creates a new set of images which can be animated, and certain combinations of source materials and scanning sides/directions produce interesting results.

 

Wake Vortex employs (re)creativity with orthogonal scanning of the artworks and cultural artefacts which were themselves developed through various modes of innovative combinatorics. Dimensional collapse in orthogonal scanning reveals new formal values and facilitates layered observation. While visually estranged, the generated imagery retains the suggestiveness of the original so the viewer intuitively regards it analytically.

 

In aviation and seamanship, wake vortex is often a dangerous, unpredictable turbulent trail generated by the craft’s motion. In this project, it points to the complexity of the imperceptible or unregistered default values of an artwork or cultural artefact, to their unforeseen expressive, cognitive, ethical and political consequences.
