Already with 10 engagements in its first year!

2014 saw CODAME launch the Adopt Program and it’s been an amazing success! An initiative designed to catalyze collaboration between innovative new media artists and visionary technology companies, Adopt Program takes many forms. Each engagement is a unique pairing and we’re proud to announce the ART+TECH projects that found homes this year:

Collab Zone

Collab Zone: Interactive Data Visualization — Adopted by Box.

Box commissioned this interactive installation, for their thousands of customers, attending their annual BoxWorks conference, to visualize an interactive, time based social graph for the people you work with. Your co-workers, vendors, suppliers, and customers.

Collab Zone, an installation that visualizes the modern workplace, uses real data to illustrate the radical changes taking place in the way we work. It shows how workers are growing more collaborative and the depth of those interactions. It unravels the shift in work habits in seven industries including tightly regulated ones like healthcare and finance.

The result is an interactive piece that combines physics, data visualization, and performance art.

This immersive experience, a truly remarkable undertaking, was made possible thanks to the generous support of Box as part of CODAME’s Adopt an Artist program.

“Collab Zone” was also covered by the media, such as The New York Times.


Fluidscapes: Art Gallery of snapshots in time of a simulated fluid field — Adopted by Organic, Inc.

Organic and CODAME have come together to bring you code-generated art by REZA. Hundreds of tech artists celebrated the opening of REZA’s work at the Organic offices in San Francisco, used as a gallery space.
