In this intimate installation, participants are invited to join a partner inside a private booth. With electronic stethoscopes and transducers, the duo share the rhythms of their hearts in real-time, stimulating sites of pulsation on one’s own and one another’s bodies.
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.

Inconnu is originally composed for a 20-channel Acousmonium, which is commonly known as a “loudspeaker orchestra”. Each sound is designed for separate speakers, but each channel is considered to be laid out in a linear fashion where one sound could only travel into adjacent channels, implying a strict directionality. However, the loudspeakers for the performance are placed on separate levels and asymmetrical spots in the construction in a non-linear fashion. Furthermore, when the piece travels in the space, the structure itself adds various effects beyond what the composition affords and further interrupts the linearity of the sonic trajectories.
Molecular Queering Agency
MAry Maggic / USA
Our world is an alien landscape filled with toxicities. Thanks to petrochemical, agricultural, and pharmaceutical industries, we live in a toxic landscape that has been colonized by hormones. These endocrine disrupting molecules are able to transfect change at the morphological level, queering our bodies and bodies of non-human species. But there is no need for sex panic. The Molecular Queering Agency will guard you against the old notion of a stable body, extracting hormones from bodily fluids (urine) and ecological fluids (rivers). From xeno-forces arise xeno-solidarities, capable of collectively hacking the systems of hormonal colonization.

Exploring the graphic patterns generated by the shadows of the Herveo Tower, a projection on a screen positioned amidst two of its columns will display Processing real- time drawings generated by code. The pattern of lines, as well as their velocity, will change according to the behaviour of people walking on its surroundings (as mapped from a computer-vision device positioned nearby).
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.
Arjon Dunnewind was born in Ommen, The Netherlands in 1967. He studied Fine Arts and Media at the Utrecht School of Arts from 1985 to 1991. In 1988 he organized the first Impakt Festival and in 1993 he established the Impakt Foundation. In the 1990-ies Arjon Dunnewind curated presentations and touring programs for international artists and filmmakers, projects that would develop into the still ongoing Impakt Events program. From 1994 till 1997 he produced ‘KabelKunst’ and ‘Vizir’, two TV-series about video art and experimental film.
Ejerce como artista, curador e historiador de arte. A través de la exploración con diferentes medios —principalmente la pintura y la escultura— acude a códigos visuales para la representación de la experiencia sensorial y perceptiva del espacio. Trabaja con objetos e imágenes que develan las tensiones entre lo artificial y lo natural, y la experiencia sensorial con relación a los sistemas de categorización y medición de la ciencia y del lenguaje. Tanto en su obra artística como en su trabajo de investigación ha profundizado en las referencias al paisaje rural y urbano en el arte moderno y contemporáneo, así como el desarrollo y vigencia del arte abstracto.
