Abstract

Code on Canvas is a Sydney- based creative coding studio with a global reach, specialising in interactive experiences across installation, mobile devices and the web. By illustrating and animating with code, our work makes complex data and interactive systems engaging, and our ‘plug and play’ approach to development makes for easy installation and maintenance at one off events or for permanent exhibition. Individually we are artists and tinkerers, with a particular interest in technology and its creative applications. As a studio, we understand the importance of prioritising concept and narrative, and are able to think creatively in a way that is informed and inspired by – rather than tethered to – our technical expertise. At Sensilab, Code on Canvas will take people through both their personal and commercial work from a creative and technical perspective and talk about how they arrived at making these varied projects.
