5:00-7:00pm ZERO1 Biennial's Toast to the Future!

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!

Artist Wendy Jacobʼs work bridges traditions of sculpture, invention, and design, and explores relationships between architecture and the body. Her projects include walls and ceilings that breathe, tightropes rigged through living rooms and floors that vibrate with sub-audible sound. Jacobʼs work has been shown at the Centre Georges Pompidou, the Kunsthaus Graz, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego. In 2011, Jacob was awarded the Maud Morgan Prize by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

ZERO1 Biennial Workshop
Homemade Apps: Designing for Autism

How might our homes and cities look and feel if they were designed for those with autism? Silicon Valley is known as a leading hub for high-tech innovation and development. This workshop aims to tap into the wealth of homemade, improvised, low-tech and non-professional solutions by Silicon Valley families in response to the needs of their autistic children.

In this workshop, we will be developing designs for living, including new constructions and adaptations of existing forms, both practical and fantastic, that address the needs of autistic individuals. A team of artists will be on hand to help participants visualize their ideas on paper. The compiled drawings will be published on-line as part of an archive of designs for re-imagining how we live.

Homemade Apps is organized by ZERO1 Biennial artist, Wendy Jacob, whose Squeeze Chair project focuses on the design of chairs to embrace the sitter; with media designer and scientist, Jackie Lee, who creates physiological sensing mechanisms that help people communicate via non-verbal ways.

This event is free and open to all interested individuals. No design experience necessary. For registration and questions, contact Wendy Jacob at wendywjacob@gmail.com

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 Brain Station series by Chinese artist group MeatMedia creates an interface to enlighten the invisible data of our body.

In Brain Station 1, the artists applied cutting-edge BCI (brain computer interface) technology to a wearable light bulb helmet that grew brighter and dimmer according to the participant’s emotion-related brainwaves. The technology amplified the brainwaves and translated them into visible light by transforming biological energy into photovoltaic energy.

Brain Station 2 (2012) also allows participants to wear another BCI on their head, but this time with a light bulb hanging in front of their eyes. The brainwaves from the visual cortex, captured by the BCI, power the light. When one’s eyes are closed, the light turns on. When eyes open, the light turns off. Even with closed eyes, one can still see the light and sense the surroundings more vividly. Therefore, Brain Station is an artistic representation of the energy flow between human perception and the rest of the world.

ZERO1 is where art meets technology to shape the future. Working with some of the most fertile and creative minds from the worlds of art, science, design, architecture, and technology, ZERO1 produces the ZERO1 Biennial, an international showcase of work at the nexus of art and technology and the ZERO1 Garage where principles of artistic creativity are applied to real world innovation challenges.

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.

 

ZERO1’s Biennial exhibition, also titled Seeking Silicon Valley, will remain on display at the ZERO1 Garage from September 12 - December 8, 2012 and will serve as the network hub for all Biennial programming. The exhibition features the work of 24 artists representing 11 different countires.

 

Reflecting the networked nature of Silicon Valley, the exhibition structure experiments with a networked model of collaborative curation. The curatorial team includes Jaime Austin (ZERO1’s Curator and Director of Programs) as Lead Curator, and exhibition co-curators Dooeun Choi (South Korea), Gisela Domschke (Brazil), Michelle Kasprzak (Canada/the Netherlands), and Regina Möller (Germany).

Commissioned by ZERO1, and presented with support from swissnex San Francisco

Moving objects | nº 692 - 803 (2012) is an installation consisting of 128 motors, 3,000 rings, and silicon wire.

Falling objects | positioning systems
(2009-2012) is a custom made machine that adds drops of water onto a special textured surface. Each drop forms into an almost perfect sphere through the surface tension of the water and the omniphopic Material. The electronically controlled pipette wanders through a square grid of 21 x 21 drops to form a micro-matrix and returns to the beginning. After approximately 300 minutes, and when the water drops have evaporated, the same process starts again.
