Over the second week of August, all of downtown San Jose -- self-proclaimed capital of California's Silicon Valley -- was transformed into an exhibition venue for electronic and new media art. This was the inaugural ZeroOne art festival, timed to coincide with the 13th annual symposium of the ISEA (Inter-Society for the Electronic Arts), an organization founded in the Netherlands in 1990 to foster "interdisciplinary academic discourse and exchange among culturally diverse organizations and individuals working with art, science, and emerging technologies."

ZeroOne San Jose Awards Awarded


Artists, Technologists, Media Theorists, Curators and Hundreds of Others Turn Out at San Jose City Hall for Presentation

SAN JOSE, CA (August 11, 2006) – Two prestigious, first-time awards were handed out this week at the opening ceremonies of ZeroOne San Jose: A Global Festival of Art on the Edge. Held this week in conjunction with the 13th International Symposium on Electronic Arts, ZeroOne San Jose showcases the work of approximately 200 artists from 24 countries.

Lynn Hershman Leeson received the first ZeroOne San Jose "Innovation that Matters Award," sponsored by IBM. The award of $7,500 acknowledges her career work. Some of Hershman’s work is in the Edge Conditions show at the San Jose Museum of Art.

Luther Thie and Eyal Fried received the first ZeroOne San Jose "Emerging Artist Award," sponsored by Adobe. The $5,000 award is for Acclair, which is currently showing in the City Hall Rotunda.

The jury for the Emerging Artists Award consisted of Christiane Paul, Adjunct Curator of New Media Arts at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Deborah Lawler-Dormer, Director of the Moving Image Centre in Auckland, New Zealand, and Adriane Wortzel, a leading new media artist based in New York.

The members of the jury were "convinced by the attention to detail in both the conceptual development and implementation of Acclair's corporate identity; the project's level of criticality with regard to issues of data processing and security, and its transgressive qualities, which, in their 'perversity,' reflect on the interconnection of security, marketing, and consumerism in our world of increasing dataveillance."

The jury also awarded Honorary Mention awards to PigeonBlog by Beatriz da Costa with Cina Hazegh and Kevin Ponto and SimVeillance by Katharine Isbister and Rainey Straus (on view through November 26 at the San Jose Museum of Art).

A "People's Choice Award," sponsored by the City of San Jose, was awarded on Saturday to Julian Bleecker for wifi.ArtCache. Voters cast their ballot via text message on a mobile phone: text “PC” + the Artwork Code listed in the Metro insert to 47647. There is no charge to vote, but text-messaging rates do apply. The People’s Choice Award is $2,500 cash.
