Thank you Organic for the ART+TECH support!
Reza is a new media artist and researcher. His work and research is centered around computational design, user interfaces, software studios, and wearables (hardware + software + form). As an artist, he uses technology (code, form and electronics) to express himself. His works manifest themselves as either visual art, spatial sculptures, and interactive installations. Reza is interested in the ideas and implications of his works, tools, and way of working. As a researcher, Reza is passionate about solving complex problems by creating new technologies and open sourcing them to allows others to build on his work and build the future. As an artist and researcher he is deeply interested in the feedback cycle that occurs when customs tools are written to accomplish an artwork, and how those tools can enable artworks to go beyond what the artist had originally envisioned. He hopes to change the world by making a difference in how people use technology, design products and experience new media art and entertainment.
About the Series:
Title: FluidScapes Prints
Medium: Gloss Finished Aluminum Metal Prints Coated with Polyester
About: FluidScapes are about making the invisible visible and the interplay of two generative systems. These images are snapshots in time of a simulated fluid field affecting the height of a generative terrain made from particles and springs. Custom software was used to simulate and visualize the generative systems interplay with each other in real-time. In this exhibition the FluidScapes have been rendered as prints, but they exist as digital files which can be 3D printed or CNC machined into FluidScape Sculptures.
When & Where
Nonprofit events to Play, Celebrate & Inspire through experience.
Promoting collaboration inspired by the convergence of art and technology.
We build immersive, engaging, out of the ordinary experiences by:
- Playing together with artists, coders, designers, game developers, creators, performers and musicians.
- Celebrating creativity by building magic-inspiring experiences that combine art with technology.
- Inspiring individuals, entrepreneurs, innovators, startups and companies by injecting creativity into their lives and organizations.
Founded in 2010 and based in San Francisco, California, Bruno Fonzi, inspired by the creative coders, designers, artists he worked with and met at Interactive Conferences around the world, decided to celebrate his passion of Art and Technology back home. CODAME's first ART+TECH Festival was born on a rooftop downtown San Francisco together with Coder/Musician/Artist Jordan Gray aka Starpause.
After 5 years and more than 60 events, 2014 marks CODAME’s most ambitious year to date. Expanding beyond its stronghold in San Francisco, the community is growing to a national level to encompass gaming, design, big data visualization, hackers, music, large-scale installations, fashion and 3D printing as well as internationally-recognized fine artists. CODAME is accelerating the way we interpret and express our rapidly changing world.
