Modality 1:

Estampa with the project Cambres fosques de la ideologia, an investigation on the technological mediations that operate behind the images and in which different audiovisual formats are used, which put in dialogue the camera obscura with the operative images of artificial intelligence (AI).

Andy Gracie with the project EoE Triptych #1, in which he develops cultural and scientific narratives around the end of the Universe in three different stages (the end of the Solar System, the end of the Galaxy and the Universe) in a triptych format, recurrently used in the history of art to frame narratives about the fate of humanity and its possible redemption.

Óscar Martín with the project MMM [meta music machines], a sound and sculptural research, among other things, that tries to develop and build a non-human sound composer, a machine/sculpture that is inspired, feeds and “learns” from the music created for centuries by human culture.

Esther Rodríguez-Barbero, with the project ¿Sueñan los cuerpos con órganos electromagnéticos?, a scenic research on the relationship between the body and implanted biomedical electronic devices and its derivations around perception, self-perception, spatial movement, the construction of spaces and narratives capable of embracing these realities.

Modality 2:

Anaisa Franco with the project Neuroconnection, an interactive installation that connects thoughts within a parametric light sculpture that allows people to play and control light-sensitive reactions using their own thoughts.

We sincerely thank all the participants of the call and congratulate Estampa, Andy Gracie, Óscar Martín, Esther Rodríguez-Barbero and Anaisa Franco.
