Presenting our Annual CODAME ART+TECH Festival, a Two-day Event in Spring of 2018!  
Codename: “ARTOBOTS” Through a diverse array of art, we explore the ever expanding and ever more tangible sphere of robotics, automation, and artificial intelligence from a humanist point of view. Bots orchestrate much of our lives, from the artificial intelligences that translate our global conversations to the industrial robots that give us our digital toys.
For many of us, this activity hums as background noise to our existence. Yet these processes in robotics, automation and artificial intelligence are already intimately entwined with our bodies and minds. In the daily movements we make, the messages we send, and the sensations we experience, we already collaborate with these entities in increasingly varied, tactile and tangible ways. Bots mediate our relationships with ourselves, each other and our environments.
While many of these interactions are familiar to us, there are myriad ways to move, think, sense and feel with our lively machines. Through art, play and performance, CODAME ART+TECH probes these potentials.
This year’s CODAME ART+TECH Festival, codenamed ARTOBOTS, explores these themes in the imaginative terrain of interactive installations and performance. We will showcase innovative and ambitious explorations in the field of art and technology, from analog works imagining future machinic others to virtual bots making art before your very eyes.
