Basic Transmutation / Alien-Migration

Aniara Rodado and Jean-Marc Chomaz Music created by: Jorge Barco / France

In Transmutation de base (Basic Transmutation), choreographer Aniara Rodado and artist physicist Jean-Marc Chomaz create a participatory space for immersive human-plant interaction. While the dancers perform movements derived from scientific research into the movement of plants, into mechanical transduction, morphogenesis and collective plant movements, the audience is invited on stage to be immersed into the olfactory scope produced in real time by the large distillation apparatuses that are blown, on purpose, as ‘glitches’. In order to address and destabilize human stereotypes of how plants are considered, Rodado distills symbolically highly charged plants.

Contact microphones and hydrophones amplify the micro- frictions emerging from a ‘sound kitchen’, a ‘alchemist factory’, completing the immersive smell scape with a sound scape to create intriguing effects of synesthesia. This piece aims at emphasizing the need to slow down to a ‘plantamorphized’ temporal scale, and engage in other sensorial interaction modes than the human-centered sight beyond cognition in times of environmental crisis and anthropogenic excesses.

    Happening "Presage"

    Hicham Berrada / France
    www.hichamberrada.com

    The work of Berrada, who starts from his studies in art and science, unites both intuition and knowledge, science and poetry. In his work he explores scientific protocols that imitate, very closely, different natural processes and / or climatic conditions.

    “I try to master the phenomena that I use in my works, just as a painter dominates their colors and brushes. As brushes and colors I use heat, cold, magnetism and light.”

    Vanishing Walks

    Diego Ortiz and Antoine Gonot / Francia

    Vanishing Walks is a show without actors. It is “acted” in its totality by the public on stage with the help of tablets. Taken together, viewers are connected to a device that is going to be inseparable from the theatrical performance. The device is both an expression space and a tool that determines the rules and restrictions of the show. Viewers follow the instructions of a text that appears on the screen of their tablet. This has the form of a classic theater text, with the stage direction, for the indications of play, and a text “dialogued” intended to be read aloud.

    Weeping Bamboo: Resonances from Within

    Andreas Kratky and Juri Hwang / USA

    Weeping Bamboo: Resonances from Within is an exploration of new forms of communicating and preserving indigenous forms of oral culture. It is a locational sound art piece offering a site- specific, reactive soundscape that is experienced in public at the Plaza de Bolívar of Manizales, Colombia. The project builds on the notion of resonance, the correlated vibration of bodies, to transmit sonic, tactile, and gestural experiences.

    Generative Membrane

    Galina Mihaleva/ Singapore

    Human are always interacting with the environment in the direct and non- direct ways. We have affected many organisms by engineering ecosystems to suit human comfort. Invisible microorganisms play significant roles in the recycling organic and non-organic materials particularly in the decomposition of natural wastes.

    Finding Prana

    Helen Collard / UK

    Finding Prana is a bio-art work that employs the yogic concept of prana (breath or life-force) and the practice of pranayama (regulation of breath) to bring awareness to our co-existence in air and breathing as our technology of being. Yoga practitioners make extraordinary claims concerning the value of the conscious observation and control of breath.

    Bart Vandeput / Finland 

    Performative Happening. With “Rapchiy” the ISEA participants/audiences – or people in the mentioned public space-will have the opportunity to engage with brain reading devices and in particular contribute to the revelation of the hidden designs that were subconsciously integrated in their conceptualization and fabrication by the initial device developers/makers.

    Flores Sónicas, Un Viaje a la Intimidad del Sonido by Aquatrio Ensemble

    Marianne Decoster-Taivalkoski, Luis Alejandro Olarte and José Alejandro Montes de Oca / Finland

    Aquatrio presents a sound installation performance made of small sonic sculptural modules spread around in a garden and resonating multicultural diversities of both Finland and Manizales region. The detailed nuances of the sonic experience will take the audience into a subtle and intimate listening adventure. Visitors can feel how divergent sonic ecosystems organize themselves as a supportive and colorful whole and how listening is a key to creating this whole.
