CODAME ART+TECH

Fundamental to my art practice is bringing perspectives to the underlying ideological structures that shape how people feel, think and live in the 21st century. Drawing inspiration from current news and sociology research, my visual and interactive work collectively develop narratives about contemporary life and provide critical insight into it. More specifically, my work often serves to raise awareness about the lesser-known impact of techno-political systems on society and individual psyche. By using a combination of traditional visual art techniques and digital technologies, this body of work bridges analog and digital realms to create its own language that engages a contemporary audience.

I would like to think of a contemporary artist as a creative thinker whose work primarily concerns about discussing relevant issues, expressing everyday feelings, and connecting people. Admittedly, being an artist can be an isolating experience - declaring a piece of work as an “artwork” immediately drives away certain audience; often we hear people say “I don’t get art”, a sad and unnecessary statement as a reaction to the exclusive and elitist behavior of the art world - and there is much more to think and act about in this realm.
