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.

Integrating biological data and phenomenon in the creative process, and proposing a transversal reflection considering the sub- themes for ISEA 2017, “Bag-Bug: Adaptive Horizontal Transfer” is an invitation to reflect on the intersections between biocreation and heritage from a cross-scale perspective. Beyond media, does bioart have the capacity to preserve heritage? The ongoing project is a tribute to the Brazilian artist Helio Oiticica’s work “B50 Bólide Saco 2 'Olfático' (1967; plastic, and coffee)”, consisting of a series of apparatus designed as ‘performatic-lab-experiments’ exploring genetic information horizontal transfers due to the eventual molecular scale superficial contamina- tions/transferences. Customized sleeping bags made of plastic, coffee beans and electronics (sensors, microcontroller and displays) – and the whole body of someone from the audience gets involved in a cross-scale conversation that can potentially con- sists in a “Horizontal Gene Transfer Session (HGTS)”!
