Under the thematic Seeking Silicon Valley, the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial proposes that contemporary art practice can re-imagine the idea, the place, and the experience of Silicon Valley. However, the ZERO1 Biennial is not only about the geographical region of Silicon Valley; it’s about investigating how the process of seeking can create a platform for creativity and experimentation centered in Silicon Valley while inviting contributions from around the world.

Renowned as a hub of entrepeneurship and innovation, Silicon Valley is notoriously difficult to experience. It lacks borders, a defining architecture, a singular culture, a central gathering point, a cohesive sense of place. To help explore this landscape of possibility, Institute for the Future designed the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial map, which gives examples of four alternative futures for the Bay Area.

Join us in a group discussion to explore future visions for Silicon Valley as we work together to re-imagine the idea, the place, and the experience of Silicon Valley. Limited Seating RSVP Today!

Fundamental shifts are underway in the relationship between San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Historically, workers have lived in residential suburbs while commuting to work in the city. For Silicon Valley, however, the situation is reversed: many of the largest technology companies are based in suburbs. Thus, an alternate transportation network of private buses threads daily through San Francisco, picking up workers at unmarked bus stops, and carrying them via the commuter lanes of the 101 and 280 freeways to and from their tech campuses. What does this flow tell us about Silicon Valley, and the City it feeds? Is San Francisco becoming the new bedroom community for Silicon Valley? What are the effects of this alternate transportation network, and can public mass transit remain flexible enough to fulfill changing transportation and commuting needs?

Join us as a panel of artists, activists, and transportation professionals discuss the future of transportation in Silicon Valley. Limited Seating RSVP today!

This panel grew out of the project The City from the Valley, a research project by Stamen Design that visualizes the growing phenomenon of private buses transporting workers between San Francisco and Silicon Valley that is currently on view as part of the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial’s hub exhibition, Seeking Silicon Valley.

The Sigh of Fukushima

Curated by Dooeun Choi for the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial with support from the National Endownment for the Arts

The Sigh of Fukushima, 2012, Three-channel video with sound, 9 min 30 sec.

The Sigh of Fukushima documents the artist and a Japanese sociologist‘s visit to the site of the nuclear disaster in Japan. The video juxtaposes the beautiful seascape of the region with the ruins of the city seen through the eyes of the two observers, and the absolute devastation it depicts arouses feeling of empathy from the viewers in their stark contrast. The subtitle text which accompanies the two screens records a conversation between Bae and the scholar. The dialogue, which begins with the simple yet profound question “how are you?”, captures their sincere empathy for the pain of the victims. When considering the historical relationship between Korea and Japan, and the level of animosity between the two countries that still resides in our society today, the artist’s message of truce and compassion leaves even deeper emotional impact.

News from Nowhere

Curated by Dooeun Choi for the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial with support from the National Endownment for the Arts

News from Nowhere (2011) begins with contemplating the social function and role of art. Initially proposed by two artists, Kyungwon Moon & Joonho Jeon, the project aims to reflect upon the direction that contemporary art practices - and society as a whole - are taking, while also envisioning the future through collaborative projects with artists, designers, and architects. Furthermore, experts from other diverse fields - education, economics, politics, culture, and religion - will join this practical platform for an in-depth conversation that aims to examine art practices and suggest a better vision for the future.

Healthy Art Program: An Energy Smart Exhibition

The Healthy Art Program, created by The Art Inspector, is an ongoing project with an art and curatorial focus. The purpose of the project is to assess the energy consumption, material use and environmental impact of art making and to educate artists about lowering their carbon footprints. Five Santa Clara County artists, Therese May, Shannon Amidon, Lori Krein, Genevieve Hastings and Christine Canepa, agreed to participate in an eco-makeover.

The five artists allowed The Art Inspector into their studios to conduct an audit of their art supplies as well as an energy assessment of their working spaces and use of power tools. Based on these assessments, The Art Inspector made some studio modifications and gave the artists tools to track their energy consumption.

Additionally, The Art Inspector supplied all of the artists with green art-making materials that have a low carbon footprint, lessening the environmental impact of their work. Some of these included replacing lighting with CFL bulbs, monitoring use of power tools, using natural mineral pigments and non-forest paper products. All of the artworks in The Energy Smart Exhibition feature the new green materials and reflect the transformation of thought, application and practice undergone by each artist. The transformation of the artists and their work can be tracked through the artists’ blog at https://artinspector.org/blog.

San Carlos Lantern Project - Lumileds

The impetus for this project came out of the San Jose Dept. Public Works project funds for the San Carlos Streetscape upgrade and also a Donation of Leds from Phillips Lumileds Leds. Having been commissioned from the city to design a public art project that coincides with the San Carlos Streetscape upgrade, we have settled a specific design, that we have been presenting to both internal city bureau as well as various committee’s for public review. In the current design we are building a series of 8 vertical displays ~ 6 feet in height, each of which will be attached to street lamps. The displays and lamps will be installed on the south-side of San Carlos street from 4 th to Market.

Each display is designed to illuminate various color combinations, and create pulsing, chase and syncing light patterns. Each display when installed would have a control system and series of sensors. One sensor would be a large ‘crosswalk-like’ button at the base of the street pole, which would encourage passersby to tap, rhythmic triggering of the light displays.

The control system for each LED strip would have a short loop memory of being able to play back each percussive sequence after a user is done playing. This would be analogous to creating a short rhythmic phrase that could be played over for about half a minute. The installation of this on the street, would create the spontaneous interaction of playing a light based instrument/game like the early electronic memory game called 'simon'.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_(game).

As a group, they will be visible down the street as a series of vertical lights. Each unit could be ‘played with’ by the public, as they make their way down the street. As multiple people get involved with them, there are various opportunities of play possible.

REACT – an artwork reaction trader
Created to inspire visitor interaction during the ZERO1 Biennial, React is designed as a forum for visitors to respond to the artworks they are experiencing. Presenting more intimate and crowd-curated feedback than is available with twitter or facebook, React hopes to delight and surprise users, potential leading to further forms of interaction.
 
Built into the Biennial's guide app, React invites visitors to share their reactions to work of art they are viewing via text or drawing. Participant are presented with 2 other anonymous responses to the same work. A simple voting system creates the crowd sourced and crowd curated gallery of critiques for each work in the Biennial.
 
React uses geolocation to help users know which artworks are in there vicinity, aiming to create a realtime response.

The React team formed during the ZERO1 HackFlux weekend at San Francisco's The Glint in June 2012. With complimentary skills the team quickly conceived, designed and built the React prototype over the weekend. The project then was selected for inclusion in the Biennial's guide. The team have since collaborated together on other projects.

SENSOREE GER Play-formance

SENSOREE GER Play-formance is a vignette of games which inspire the participants to use their bodies as the joystick. With SENSOREEs GER - Galvanic Extimacy Responder - Mood Sensor designs, players learn to control their calm and excited states, communicate their moods through reflective feedback, and experiment with “effecting the affect of the other.”

A portion of the SENSOREE Gym will be installed. The SENSOREE Gym is sensory circuit training. A network of SENSOREE Apparatus provides a series of exercises that realigns the sensorium – the body’s ability to assimilate stimuli. This experience reboots the body and focuses the mind. http://sensoree.com/artifacts/sensoree-gym/
