On April 7-8, we will be supporting ZERO1 and the SJSU Paseo Prototyping Festival, so if you live in the Bay Area, come out and join us! Click on the link or see below for the event description.
ZERO1 is partnering with the Paseo Prototyping Festival to produce a series of creative interventions during the festival that explore civic innovation using the combined disciplines of art, science, and technology. As varied in format as they are in content, the interventions include: a public sculpture that serves as an augmented reality portal into the Bay Area housing crisis; a panel discussion on international community projects that apply art, science, and technology to civic challenges; DIY holograms that increase LGBTQ visibility and further equality; an arts incubator workshop on cross-sector collaboration for social impact; and site-specific projection mapping at the festival that addresses the topic of social inclusion.
View our new “Who Am I?” video! This short clip asks us to consider how we make assumptions and form stereotypes based on how we perceive different faces, art, and cultures.
