2012 ZERO1 Biennial: Seeking Silicon Valley


Sep 12, 2012 – Dec 8, 2012

Daily (schedule)


Various locations




Silicon Valley has its heritage in a garage, what with Bill Hewlett and David Packard birthing the modern Silicon Valley with their garage-based electronics business and, later, Steve Jobs building his very first Apple computer in his parents' garage in Los Altos. The ZERO1 Garage is an homage to such homebrewed innovation, and offers this cycle's biennial, titled "Seeking Silicon Valley," to once again spur creativity in the Valley through a dizzying influx of technology-related art at the Garage and other Silicon Valley venues. Some of the projects underway include the Slow Mail installation, which sends actual snail mail by way of real live horse along the first-ever e-mail corridor. Shelter depicts a conceptual bus shelter, with a participatory challenge to create an even better one. Pi in the Sky attempts to become the largest ephemeral installation of all time, skywriting the first 1,000 digits of pi across the Bay Area. With so much going on, you might want to get your own Art Ambassador. To the future!
