Exhibitions and Commissions

Leading contemporary artists and designers founding CodeCreate apply the methods and perspectives of our workshops with professional care to engage an audience in meaningful considerations of intersections of art, technology and other forms of diversity.

Traverse presented at The Chicago Cultural Center began with multiple workshops showcasing CodeCreate and building model wheelchairs before the show was presented with live captions created in the Scratch programming language frequently facilitated with learners.

The first iteration of Traverse at the Glenwood Avenue Arts Fest featured puppets controlled by actors with and without disabilities and facilitated learners building with the same materials, exploring cardboard and electromagnets, that were then used in the show.

CodeCreate built an 8′ animatronic “Blengin,” following the vision of late Chicago artist Henry Darger for Chicago’s Arts in the Dark parade based on techniques in Power Puppets with Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art.

“We couldn’t have a better maker than our friends with the CodeCreate Collective.” -Homewood Science Center Programs Manager Holly Kelsven


CodeCreate designed and built the game boards — as well as the production of — Password in Chicago.

“The board came out just beautiful. The curves- like a modern take on an old 70s game show feel. I loved the aspect of having a remote control that I could use to light up the board. I loved CodeCreate’s flexibility and I liked having CodeCreate come in and set up some lights and really make it feel like it was a TV show.” -Host Jerry Mouse
