Each week, host Gabriel Barcia-Colombo speaks with a new artist, curator, technologist, AI, collector, innovator, about the ever-changing relationship between art and tech.
In addition to being a curator at CODAME, a community of innovators shaping the future through playful launches of art and tech projects, Vanessa Chang lectures at California College of the Arts and holds a PhD in “Modern Thought and Literature” from Stanford University. In this episode, Vanessa shares her background and interest in art and tech, insights into the projects CODAME is involved in, addresses the importance of play in art, and questions the general perception of what "tech" is. She also shares some sneakpeaks into CODAME's upcoming art and tech festival ARTOBOTS, opening June 4, 2018 at The Midway, 900 Marin St, San Francisco.

Sparked by the network of creative coders, designers, and artists that Bruno Fonzi and Jordan Gray knew from around the world, CODAME was founded to celebrate their passion for 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. CODAME builds ART+TECH projects and nonprofit events to inspire through experience.
