Code on Canvas is a Sydney-based creative coding studio 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.
We work with a variety of technologies, ranging from low level technologies such as C++ programming and circuit design right through to higher level technologies such as mobile and web development. This enables us to execute just about any idea that we or our clients come up with, whether it be experiential installations triggered by movement, mobile applications responding to location or multi touch kiosks to explore data visualisations.
Founded by Lukasz Karluk and René Christen, we bring together over 20 years of experience working with museums and cultural institutions such as the Australian War Memorial, Powerhouse Museum and Museum of Contemporary Art; advertising and corporate clients such as Google, JC Deceaux, Telstra, Cisco, PwC and numerous automotive companies; international musicians such as Will.I.am, Flume, Brian Eno, Karl Hyde and more.
