Americans for the Arts interviews Toni Sikes, Co-Founder and CEO of CODAworx about her connection to the arts. “The arts can transform spaces (through public art), and they can transform lives. My company, CODAworx, has built a network of artists who create large-scale artworks that are designed for the built environment in which we live and work. We have seen firsthand how these kinds of artworks can transform spaces.”
CODAworx, the hub of the commissioned art economy, announced today that it will produce this year’s CODAsummit in Denver, Colorado, on September 30-October 2, 2020. This third annual conference explores the intersection of art and technology, bringing together leading artists, fabricators, technology companies and thought leaders in art and design from around the globe. CODAsummit 2020 focuses on the paradigm shift in art enabled by technology and features artists who are using technology to create placemaking commissions.
Lea de Wit creates glass sculptures that glow and shimmer in tones that resemble gemstones and embers. “I love working with color. One of my first loves in art before glassblowing was painting. I approach color with my glasswork in a painterly manner. I layer color upon color to build intensity and vibrancy, playing with varying amounts of opacity and transparency to create depth and dimension. Additionally, my compositions tend to incorporate color transitions to add visual impact and activate the space for which the work has been designed.”
The 2019 CODAsummit, held at the El Paso Museum of Art downtown, drew hundreds of local and out-of-town artists, technologists, innovators, museum directors and others to share innovative ideas and brainstorm ways to combine art and technology in public installations making them immersive and interactive. Among the presenters at the event were internationally recognized artist and architect Guto Requena, who has won several awards, lectured and exhibited in more than 20 countries, and Mexican-born artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, who will unveil in November a cross-border light and sound project Border Tuner in El Paso and Ciudad Juarez.
Trained as an architect and musician at Princeton and MIT, Janney creates works of art that can best be described as interactive spaces where patterns of changing sound and color stimulate the imagination.
When artists, designers, industry resources, and clients work together, common places are transformed into spectacular spaces. CODAworx, the hub of the commissioned art economy, has once again partnered with Interior Design magazine to announce the winners of the seventh annual international CODAawards: Collaboration of Design + Art. The CODAawards recognize collaborations that result in outstanding projects, which successfully integrate commissioned art into interior, architectural, or public spaces.
