CODE Live Opening Night

CODE Live Opening Night

A few of us went to the Opening of CODE Live in Vancouver, last Thursday evening…

We had a chance to explore both the Emily Carr and the Great Northern Way CODE locations.. Emily Carr was a bit more casual, with a video installation, digitalized clothing and fashion art. I hung out with mostly with Mariska, Dave Olson and Bev Davies (Respected Old Skool Punk Photographer)… We had some of the food and met with other social media friends before we made our way to the CODE 1 location..

At 8pm we went to the Great Northern Way Campus for the Opening of CODE 1.

At 7.50$ a beer/wine, it’s not really a cheap venue to go party, but I must say it is worth the detour to have a look at the various installations..

My favourite GNW CODE Installations:

Condemned Bulbes

brilliant

the ReacTable
