01SJ 2010 Biennial

Mark your calendars for the 2010 01SJ Biennial, September 16-19, 2010 whose theme is Build Your Own World.

“The best way to predict the future is to invent it,” posited Alan Kay.

This idea encapsulates the Build Your Own World
theme where: The future is not about what’s next; it’s about what we
can build to ensure that what’s next matters. How can we, as
resourceful, innovative, and knowledgeable local and global citizens
build and participate in a desirable future in the face of global
climate change, economic meltdown, political instability, and cultural
divisiveness?

The 2010 01SJ Biennial is predicated on the notion that as artists,
designers, engineers, architects, marketers, corporations and citizens
we have the tools to (re)build the world, conceptually and actually,
virtually and physically, poorly and better, aesthetically and
pragmatically, in both large and small ways. Under the theme “Build
Your Own World,” the 3rd 01SJ Biennial will present a broad range of
exemplary work, which not only imagines the future (world) but builds
it.

The 3rd 01SJ Biennial will take place September 16-19, 2010,
throughout San Jose. It is about how powerful ideas and innovative
individuals from around the world can make a difference and come
together to build a unique, city-wide platform for creative solutions
and public engagement. It is about the inspiration needed to build a
world we want to live in and are able to live with.

“The Biennial in 2010 is slated to be the most provocative and
relevant Biennial that ZER01 has produced yet,” said Steve Dietz,
Artistic Director for ZER01. “Beyond the fact that we’ll be presenting
new commissions from some of the world’s most creative artists, the
theme will shape a fascinating and revealing exploration of what the
future might look like.  Additionally, the curatorial model allows us
to both showcase local expertise and complement it with outside talent
that can raise the visibility and stature of the overall Biennial
program.”

In its third iteration, the 01SJ Biennial will further position San
Jose and Silicon Valley as an international center for arts and
culture.  With over 45,000 attendees in 2008 – more than attended
either Ars Electronica, the foremost event of its kind, which as has been in existence for 30 years, or Art Basel Miami Beach,
which in its seventh year attracted 40,000 – the 01SJ Biennial is
emerging as one of the world’s most significant events of its kind. 
Its phenomenal growth is due in large part to the fact that it is a
mirror of the innovation and spirit that define Silicon Valley and
provides a unique perspective to the world and a synchronicity with the
region where it exists.

Come back for details or, better yet, sign-up for our e-news to keep abreast of news about the 2010 Biennial and other developments at ZER01.

28 international Festival Les Instants Vidéo 2015

Les Instants Vidéo is an event dedicated to video art and electronic poetry with its multiple forms, monobands, installations, performances, multimedia…
It is all together a festival and a laboratory where international renowned artists and works of arts can meet with works that are more fragile, still in progress, delicates. In order to support real encounters between works of art, artists and spectators, there is no competition and the admission is free.

The event is made of different spaces of time. The international Encounters take place in Friche la Belle de Mai in Marseilles (in November). Every year, this central part of the event welcome more and more spectators, in a space we try to make as friendly as possible.
And either before and after these dates, we act in concert with our partners to organise the festival stopovers in other spaces in Marseille, the area…and abroad. We name the whole stopovers a poetronic constellation.

We do not give a theme, but every year we give a title to our manifestation like one does for a collection of poems: “Burn your own patience”, “Resistance my sweet concern”, “(Seize) The image round the waist”, “Under the sign of the Quetzal” ; … and we are wonderful ! ….

The title for this year festival (not definitive) is You expected me virgin. I expected you not to be a dumbass.

  1. We are prisoners of the image we have of the other (the foreigner, the poor, the opposite sex, the other sexuality, the revolutionary, the poet...).

  2. We are free each time we refuse to be kept in the dream of the other (fascist, racist, sexist, moraliser, religious...).

  3. The time has come for images to migrate, as well as for us so as to escape from stereotypes which make us monsters.

Artists don't have to follow the lines above. Be sure we will watch your work with attention, being aware that electronic poetry is fragile, delicate : a quivering…

3x3 SMIL Stereoscopy Mapping In Live

Is a natural continuation of festivals held in Argentina between 2000 and 2007: especially, the events of  Festival Internacional de Arte Digital which aimed to create an interaction space between novices, artists and professionals of digital art, design, video, photography, music. And also any other event oriented toward experimental practice (performances, installations, etc.) having a link with the audiovisual, such as multimedia production, Vj, Dj, or audiovisual creation of any kind. Each artist, involved, was seeking new forms of expression. The Festival Internacional de Arte Digital was the first festival of this kind in Argentina, and the first real space distribution of independent Argentinean artists’ works working with digitization of sound and image through various media.

In accordance with the ethics and aesthetics of digital festivals ​​in Argentina for ten years, this 1rst edition of 3x3 SMIL, Stereoscopy Mapping In Live in Paris, will have water as its emblem.

Loyal to figure 3, we will highlight three of four natural elements: water, earth and air.

These elements, magical screens of man before the history and his evolution, are his memory. However, despite its wealth, he strives to destroy his most precious natural resources.

In this period where the planet is the largest ocean contamination, particularly following the explosion of the Fukushima nuclear plant, in Japan, it seems fundamental that artistic expression can address this ecological disaster.

For this reason, the organizers of 3x3 SMIL Stereoscopy Mapping In Live, invite participants to reflect on the theme of water: an reckless behavioural observation of the man with his habitat. This discussion could be extended to other problems such as the disadvantages of certain populations to have access to drinking water, the links between water and energy, the multiple uses of water in the world, water and health, and, for example, with other contaminants of the oceans.

Metaphorical or allegorical presence of liquid will be required as part of the works participating in the festival.

 

Why 3 x 3 ?

« 3x3 » :  3 indicates the duration of videos that will participate in the festival, between 3 seconds and 3 minutes, and the format in three dimensions.

« Stereoscopy »: « stéréo » comes from Greek « relating to space ». Today when we speak about stereo, reference is made to the stereophonic sound, but originally, the term was associated with stereoscopic, drawn or photographed images. The term 3D is now referring to 3D images and specifically 3D movies which include three dimensions.

« Mapping » or « Video-mapping » : adaptation of video content on a 2D surface or 3D, an object, a facade, a human body

 

 Repercussion and targets

 

The originality of 3x3 SMIL Stereoscopy Mapping In Live, lies not only in the fact that this is the first event dedicated to stereoscopy, but also in its mutant character with a concept which evolves progressively from its editions. It will listen to the various speakers, artistic proposals, new technological discoveries. 3x3 SMIL Stereoscopy Mapping In Live will be launched in France in 2013 (Cayeux Sur Mer, Deauville, Cannes, Lyon ...), followed by Europe (Berlin, Bilbao, Amsterdam, Milan, London, Brussels,...).
The 3x3 SMIL Stereoscopy Mapping In Live is open to the public, ranging from simple novice, through the passionate artists of the image, to photography and 3D video specialists. It is focused on 3D, but it is open to any artistic manifestation that could make its own media experience.
Its purpose is to promote the art, aspiring artists, while inviting the public to a healthy and objective reflection on man and his environment.
