Computational forms of art have become widespread, especially among the younger generation of artists/inventors, and at the same time the pandemic is forcing us to rethink art forms for an online world. This evening will focus on three examples of how the process and format of making and exhibiting art is changing.
Codame is an art and tech platform and organization founded in 2010 in San Francisco by Bruno Fonzi and Jordan Gray. Codame has staged public events such as festivals and exhibitions that have cemented a community of more than 200 artists and inventors. It has recently opened its own online exhibition gallery on newart.city.
Donald Hanson is an Internet artist, electronic musician, hardware hacker, graphic designer, visual jockey, gif maker, and new media art researcher based in Oakland. In 2020 Hanson created the online exhibition space newart.city that has been used for major exhibitions of online art by Gray Area and SJSU CADRE.
Char Stiles is a digital artist, educator and programmer. Using computational systems and algorithms she is producing pieces that span disciplines such as video, dance, interactive installation, performance and online works.
