ZER01 year round signature programming leading to the 01SJ Biennial serves to educate and cultivate audiences, build partnerships, and maintain visibility for the organization through lecture series, artist salons, workshops, and family-oriented special events.

Global climate change has far reaching ramifications, and as a result the world as we know it will not be the world of 100 or perhaps even 10 years. Armed with an awareness of how our actions impact the environment, how will this affect our ideas about who we are? This was the question posed by CADRE New Media Lab at San Jose State University in an open call to artists earlier this summer.

From entries all over the world, six finalists were chosen. Leading artist Andrea Polli, seen at 01SJ 2008, will be exhibiting her work Sonic Antarctica We are also excited to feature the work Markers and 100,000-year journey by Xavier Cortada. Other works exploring the poles include Jerome Gueneau and Catherine Rannou, Phil Boissonnet, Andrea Juan, and Erika Blumenfeld. The jurors for the exhibit include surveillance artist Hasan Elahi, new media artist Robin Lasser and writer/curator Annick Bureaud.
