Members of Intersection for the Arts (http://theintersection.org/) a 501(c)(3) non profit organization. ORIGINSparked by the network of creative coders, designers, and artists that Jordan Gray (http://twitter.com/StarPause) and Bruno Fonzi (http://twitter.com/BrunoFonzi) knew from around the world, CODAME was founded to passionately celebrate art and technology. The CODAME brand of immersive, engaging, and out of the ordinary experiences was coined at the inaugural CODAME ART+TECH Festival in 2010 on a foggy rooftop in downtown San Francisco.

Since then we have built...

60+ events (http://codame.com/events) both public and private
100+ projects (http://codame.com/projects) built in collaboration with artists around the globe
300+ tech+artists (http://codame.com/artists) collective
35,000+ community of top-industry technologists, designers and artists

2019 ART+TECH Festival 『 SPACE 』


Announcing the annual 2019 CODAME ART+TECH Festival http://codame.com/events/art-tech-festival-2019-space “We are not going to be able to operate our Spaceship Earth successfully nor for much longer unless we see it as a whole spaceship and our fate as common. It has to be everybody or nobody.” - Buckminster Fuller Where: GitHub, 88 Colin P Kelly Jr St, San Francisco, CA When: Oct. 25-27, 2019 RSVP: Reserve your ticket now on http://codame.com/events/art-tech-festival-2019-space Thank you for your support for ART ♥️ TECH Space is a canvas on which we write our stories, paint our dreams, and build our realities. Space is a province of the known...and the unknown. As the film camera captured the transformation of the modern world, so, too, do emerging digital media point their lenses toward the future. Through art, as we architect space, we envision the future. The 2019 CODAME ART+TECH Festival explores the many facets of space. How do technologies like virtual reality allow new ways of living, being, playing, and moving in space? How might robotic prosthetics extend our bodies in space? How do radical mapping projects redefine our relationships to our world, and to each other? In this exhibition, we aim to expand our space and transcend borders. CODAME encourages participation from international artists! We love to hear from you, submit your project proposal now or contact us if interested volunteering or just to say hi!
