CodeSurfing (or Lฦฐแป›t Code) is a backyard-science study club in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. CodeSurfing supports interdisciplinary study in art and technology. Activities at CodeSurfing includes community gatherings, worshops, courses, and collaborative research projects.

Manifesto

At CodeSurfing, technology is at its oneness with life and nature. Studies at CodeSurfing seek to understand and foster the harmony between technology, artists, and the environment around the them.

At CodeSurfing, technology does not limit itself within coding, but expands into tool, machine, system, algorithm, and logic that already existing in our daily practice. Studies at CodeSurfing support experiments on learning, archiving, and continuing these valuable local assets.

Participants

CodeSurfing provides a collaborative space for everyone to study, regardless their backgrounds, ages, sexual orientations, and beliefs. We welcome art practitioners in different mediums to come have fun with us in the united voice of technology.

CodeSurfing pursues accessibility in technology through education. We believe that given opportunity to learn, everyone can find their freedom and their unique vision in using technology. From decentralizing the education of technology, we as a coummnity shall break free from the capitalistic and patriarchal canon of current society and tech industry.

Friends

CodeSurfing thanks our beloved friends for supporting us to realize this vision.
