On the 6th of February, 2010, to coincide with the opening of CODE Live at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, the Cultural Olympiad 2010 and Emily Carr presented a one-day forum that brought together national and international artists, (many of which were exhibiting work within CODE) curators and thinkers for a series of dialogues on the relationships between digital technologies and creative practices today.
CODE Dialogues asked how new technologies shape our individual and collective capacities to think, understand, collaborate, and create. There were discussions on crossing cultural boundaries with the use of new technologies and exploring the notion of organic technology, across transdisciplinary fields of art, science, technology, design, humanities and social science.
Participants included: Bruce Ferguson, Dan Roosegaarde, M. Simon Levin, Don Ritter, Luc Courchesne, Alexandra Samuel, Rafael Lozano Hemmer, Maria Lantin Sara Diamond, Ralph Borland, Faisal Anwar, Dustin Rivers, Galen Scorer, Anais met det Ancxt, Johanna Berzowska, Brendan Wypich, Jer Thorp and Randy Lee Cutler.
