Art by Code

CODAME presents “Art by Code” in conjunction with Roll up Gallery.

“Art by Code” is a triumph of human ingenuity and a tribute to artists who dare to imagine, invent, and test the limits.

Open Gallery: January 9th, 2015 – Closing Night: January 31st, 2105

Where: Roll up Gallery at The Public Works SF, 161 Erie St, San Francisco, CA (map)

“Art by Code” gives us an insight into a changing cyber universe populated by artists who brave new frontiers with their computational skills, and go beyond the limits of commercial software to create their unique codes that center on ‘interactivity’ and ‘user’ experiences.

With “Art by Code” we aim to ignite the imagination of a new emerging generation and keep challenging the conventional ways of thinking about art and making art. The computer as the medium raises a host of intriguing questions and forces us to rethink what is art.

The bay area artists have been generating increasingly complex visual forms with tools that rely on open-source. They use programs such as Java [processes], C++, [OpenFrameworks, Cinder], GLSL, JavaScript and AS3. These forms previously could not been imagined.

The selection here represents a sampling of an explosive field and draws on the latest in computer technology from such fields like fractals, algorithmic processes, software art, generative art, data visualization, 3-D software, and much more.

Art curators: Betty Bigas from Roll up Gallery and Bruno Fonzi and Jordan Gray from CODAME
