● Main Theme: LUX AETERNA (Eternal Light)

A topic inspired by a literal meaning of the host city Gwangju, “City of Light”, includes subcategories embracing complex themes that allow open interpretations in culture, science, and history. For example, religiously, light is implied as divinity and immortality and scientifically. it is an energy collection of particles and wavelength signals. It symbolizes the enlightenment and rationale in humanities. Also, the presence of light creates Umbra and Penumbra. In light of the fact that light is the most specific example of versatility in which various interpretations can occur, it will provide us with the context where cohesion of procedural logic based on the human sensibilities and technology of artistic inspirations is freely presented, which is in line with what ISEA has been pursuing.


● Aeternitas: Eternity of the Mortal

● Symphonia: Harmony of Noise

● Illuminatio: Enlightenment of A.I & A.E

● Penumbra: In-between
