Art galleries in San Francisco have been unsuccessfully courting techies’ money, er, attention, for decades, but it seems the middleman has little use in this crowd, which has an abundance of techies-turned-artists. Seeing is believing tonight, when the nonprofit CODAME takes over a four-story SOMA building to show you just what happens when art and technol-ogy converge on the theme of “dimension.” Head up to the rooftop for a dance party with the San Francisco skyline as a backdrop, or descend into the depths of the basement for an indie gaming tournament, passing an arcade and fire dancers on the way down, not to mention a whole lot of art across a variety of media. We’re excited to see Perry Chan, code ninja, collaborate with Elisa Sassi, who is monomaniacal about bunnies, on a multi-screen installation that promises to deliver le-thal doses of cuteness. The faint at heart should avoid Sekitani’s work, best described as collage-meets-cadaver, and in-stead seek out Rachel Binx and Sha Hwang, the duo behind the awesome jewelry line Meshu, who study the movements of an individual, and then apply their findings to a laser-cut piece of jewelry.
