ORIGINS

DERIVE was born in Japan from the wanderings of photographer Cody Ellingham.

Living in the megacity of TOKYO, Cody would wander late into the night,
exploring the city not just as it is, but as it was, and as it could have been.

Cody partnered with 3D creator Ruben Fro and sound artist SJF in 2018 to create a ground-breaking interactive installation event, Future Cities.

From Shanghai to Hong Kong, Taipei to Tokyo, DERIVE has grown and been exhibited and featured globally.
