The Cultural Olympiad’s digital edition, CODE stakes out a space in the digital realm where audiences and artists can connect, create and collaborate. Code Live is an 18-day, landmark event with visual art exhibitions, music and performances fuelled by digital technology and audience involvement. It begins February 4 and runs through February 21.
Montreal-based electronic artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer creates interactive installations that seek to provide critical platforms for public participation. Using 20 large robotic searchlights around English Bay, the canopy of the Vancouver sky is transformed by the local audience or individuals worldwide who design their own patterns via a website.
