Curated by Tom Barker

CodeX is an exhibition of playable and disruptive digital artworks that explore human-machine relationships, and how society is influenced by technology, innovation and design.

Since the 1950s, digital and technological art has evolved and diversified into a broad range of almost magical art forms with many labels, such as: video art, internet art, post-internet art, hacktivist art, cybernetic art, algorithmic art, and information visualization art. CodeX places its artworks under the collective term, “eArt”, which embraces all of these sub-categories.

In our rapidly evolving digital age, artists and designers continue to apply creative ideas using new technologies. CodeX brings together eight recent and engaging eArt pieces. The diverse technologies and interactions raise questions about the human condition, exploring our attitudes, differences and similarities with machines. The exhibition proposes three themes to codify eArt: Algorithms, Identity, and The Nature of Reality.

The art machines in CodeX offer spontaneous carnival-like excitement while prompting visitors to reflect on the nature of being human - through sometimes playful, other times uncomfortable interactions with the works.

All art is ultimately defined by its audience. In CodeX the artworks go a stage further: they are incomplete as creative pieces without you as a player or participant.
