        SIBYL. About artificial belief

        Jason Castro
        Colombia

        SIBILA is a robotic video installation that explores through TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite), a telescope developed by NASA and MIT, the possibility of finding habitable planets that may have presented favorable conditions to develop some kind of life. This system performs a study of the sky 85% looking for exoplanets of similar size and atmospheric composition to Earth, as well as the distance at which they are with respect to their tutelary star. are we alone in the universe?

        Naked in paradise

        Luc Courchesse
        Canada

        NAKED IN PARADISE is a virtual reality installation that exposes the life and works of the artist Luc Courchesne as an archive built, more or less arbitrarily, by the computer. The explorable space of the archive, with fully functional versions of his early interactive works such as PORTRAIT ONE (1990), straddles two polarities: the Future, a dark space where light has yet to penetrate, and the Past, bathing in light. . At the periphery, the explorable space is a featureless white cloud (in the distant past) and a dark cloud (in the far future that extends beyond what can be imagined). In between, the cozy familiarity of a present that exposes the life of the artist from his birth to the present, an important aspect of the space is that it can be arranged and rearranged by computer algorithms in real time on demand. The title, NUDE IN PARADISE, expresses the pleasure of exposing large amounts of information and allowing the whole to be embraced - it is also ideal for diving in and exploring any of the discrete elements. In its current form, the VR Database can be downloaded as a Unity3D build for the current generation of head-mounted floppies. theater plays.

        cycling

        Ricardo Dalfarra
        Canada-Argentina

        "CYCLE" (2015). Series of 24 images generated by mathematical algorithms. It is a work made up of a series of 24 images generated by mathematical algorithms, which are shown sequentially, forming a cycle that is continuously repeated (loop). The 24 digital images make up a group that in turn is linked to a family of series created by similar means, always based on the application of mathematical models. “CICLAGEM” uses mathematical models based on multifractal noise to generate images that resemble mounds and rocks, texture modulators, infinite space generators, and nonlinear conversion systems for digital image processing, among others.

        Bodies contained within each other

        Jasmine Rojas
        Colombia

        We are immersion. Human existence is only possible thanks to the relationships we establish with other living beings and with those that science has classified as abiotic or “non-living”. For this reason, I start from the idea of imagining my existence as one more body, submerged in the mixture of bodies that we are, contained among each other, without any hierarchy. Bodies contained among themselves is an audiovisual installation, made up of two ceramic pieces with contact speakers, a glass piece, a photograph and a book that has the moor as its reference point and dead leaves and the central pith as its object of study: parts of the body of some plant species of the genus Espeletia or Frailejón. I found in this plant an exposed and immobile body, capable of living in an extreme environment, since its morphology and physiology was created from an adaptive relationship with the atmosphere, so no matter how deep you will observe inside this plant I realized that this and its environment are inseparable, the existence of one without the other is not possible. From there I began to find very interesting relationships between the mechanism of the plant and the means of my artistic practice: ceramics and sound.

        Liquid Democracy

        John Paul Pacheco
        Works in alliance with the image festival

        Liquid democracy (or digital participatory) is a form of direct democracy in which people can vote on individual proposals without delegating all their decisions to a single representative. To do so, citizens can vote through issue-by-issue online platforms. The simulation of these spaces of representation (political, geographical and ideological), presupposes universal access to these technologies, as well as the homogenization of their use, revealing the place of digital technology as an ideology that operates based on its supposed transparency, and to that extent, it reinforces its forms of control over the territory, subjects and information flows.arrafo + Pararafo Break

        Logical Sets/Logic Fluids

        sebastian rivera
        Colombia

        The image today is multiple, it is overflowing, it is cheap, it is of low quality, the image is no longer an object, it is communication. "Conjuntos Lógicos/Fluidos Lógicos" cannot be conceptualized as a work that responds to the paradigm of analog culture in its entirety, it is presented as a work that demonstrates praxis of the image and that in turn works on the renewal of iconography by Through the implementation of the digital imaginary that allows exploring other spatialities about which it is enough to clarify, the muscular gesture fits. The action of the body performing in favor of building on what has been built goes beyond the limits of the image that invents the liberation of two realities that make the work itself flow and enrich itself, that generates a dynamism with the world and, in turn, allows the exploitation of the artistic document in its languages and its possibilities.

        Grandma, I'm going to Space 2019

        Jose Garcia
        Works in alliance with the image festival

        In the video, Grandma, I'm going to Space, I tell my grandmother that I'm going to space and her reaction is authentic. I knew that her ability to believe was due to unique and special circumstances. My goal was to imagine maybe in 200 years what conversations with family members about interstellar travel might be like. It's a conversation to represent the time when the wonder of space travel will be accessible to many more people. In the Solar Eclipse video, we toured the streets of my family's town with a car-pipe announcement system to share with people that in 7 years there would be a solar eclipse over Colombia. It is an impractical but at the same time poetic gesture to announce the eclipse years in advance because this is a celestial event that occurs very rarely in the life of a human being. It is a game that we started with the townspeople and their reactions are interesting. In a few years we will return to the town to continue the preparations for the solar eclipse.
