ZERO1 Launches Fellowship Program

As many of you are aware, the ZERO1 Fellowship program is one of the numerous programs premiering at the ZERO1 Garage. Last Wednesday evening over 75 people came to meet the inaugural ZERO1 Fellows and learn about each of their projects. ZERO1 Fellows are charged with developing lines of artistic research and cultural production in response to a specific innovation challenge. They will have access to emerging technology, resources and expertise provided by sponsors and the Fellowship network is further informed by ZERO1 exhibitions, talks, publishing, and special events that establish context and serve to inspire.

We’re extremely excited to provide the ZERO1 Fellows with the opportunity to pursue their projects in both the traditional context of interdisciplinary, peer-to-peer networks and communities, as well as through unique collaborations with industry partners on innovations that will have the potential to positively impact society.

Happy New Year from the ZERO1 Garage!

Happy 2013 everyone! Hope the holidays were filled with much joy and relaxation for all of you. December was a bittersweet month as we officially concluded the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial and moved out of our offices across from St. James Square. However, we’re so excited to be in the ZERO1 Garage! One of the great things about the ZERO1 Garage is the versatility of this space! It will host our year-round exhibitions, future Biennials, our Fellowship program and can even be utilized for events such as staff retreats, team-building workshops, seminars, holiday parties, and possibly even what could be the edgiest wedding in town!

The 2012 ZERO1 Biennial, A Successful Run

The 2012 ZERO1 Biennial has officially come to an end, and here at ZERO1. We wrapped up the Biennial this past weekend with over 250 people visiting the exhibition one last time on Friday night and then on Saturday, hosting two amazing panels with SPUR, Stamen Design and Institute for the Future, followed by our closing reception to celebrate the conclusion of the Biennial with partners, artists, and friends. 

By all accounts, this year's Biennial was a huge success. Centered in San Jose, the ZERO1 Biennial represented a significant place-making opportunity that galvanized community engagement through collaboration and partnerships not otherwise possible.  It allowed for the presentation of groundbreaking work by local and international artists and provided access to innovative, world-class art for an audience interested in the sandbox where art and technology meet. Attendees of the Biennial experienced public art, interactive digital media, performances, and much more!

Women, Art & Technology:an uneasy access?

“Women, Art, and Technology: An Uneasy Access?” is presented in conjunction with the exhibition, “Future Imagined: What Next?” which was part of the ZERO1 2012 Biennial. Don’t miss this exciting panel discussion with Michal Gavish, Penelope Finnie, Penny Nii, and Carla Riggi. The exhibition highlights the interplay between artists, technologists and scientists as they converge to test the artistic limits of the possible in a technologically driven world. This complementary public forum brings together a diverse set of practitioners who are forging the creative edges of art, science, and technology. The focus will be on the triumphs and challenges of being a woman working in a technology-based art practice. The women on our panel will recount the contributions they make as innovators and entrepreneurs and will share their perspectives on how to prosper in a technological environment in which men predominate.

ADA in flight to Moscow

The beautiful and rather large analog interactive kinetic sculpture that we have come to know and love as ADA will be soon moving from the ZERO1 Garage to the Garage Center for Contemporary Culture based in Moscow.
