My second-day highlights of the Biennial

Today the biennial picked up right where it left off the VIP Preview on Wednesday. The Garage was open and there were a lot of things going on:

What's at the Tech Museum for the Biennial? (artists Zigelbaum + Coelho)

For Jamie Zigelbaum and Marcello Coelho, their work is striving to bring what they call a contemporary experience. Through their latest installation at the Tech Museum, entitled 'Resolution' they bring a whole new interactive experience to the idea of painting. The work consists of dozens of “pixels” magnetically attached to a metal wall. Each “pixel” is a self-sufficient computer emitting a single-color light which changes when tapped. These “pixels” react to you, interact with one another and in general create a completely dynamic and engaging display for a visitor to enjoy.

Denizen by Emma Polster

Coexisting with wildlife is an unavoidable part of living in the hills and less-trafficked sections of the Bay Area. The coyote is a native animal to California and despite the human development, found specifically in the Silicon Valley, the coyote has been able to thrive by adapting to it’s new surroundings. A group of Midwest based artists, eve Warnock, Tina Matthews, and Colin McDonald, focus on the coyote as the primary subject for their latest collaborative work, performance piece, Denizen.
