Report from 01SJ/AbsoluteZero

Benoit Maubrey/ Audio Gruppe’s The Audio Ballerinas (2010) use light sensors that enable them to produce sounds as they dance. Friday, September 17th, during AbsoluteZER0. San Jose, California.

AbsoluteZero is a street art fair with a heavy DIY tech vibe. It’s a spin-off from the similar annual SubZero event. My sole contribution was the music video for nickname: Rebel‘s “Ouroboros” (without the music), which was part of the video loop projected by the Art Ark. There were many familiar faces from SubZero and Maker Faire displaying their work, including Share San Jose, who are always worth checking out for their home-brew showcase of gadgets and programming, like the beatseqr.

AbsoluteZER0 is a vibrant street festival where the public can engage with art, music, science, and technology in new and compelling ways outside on city streets. Growing out of the success of the SubZER0 events during the June South First Friday, AbsoluteZER0 celebrates the creativity and technological virtuosity that are the hallmarks of Silicon Valley by showcasing art projects for public exhibition, performance, provocation, and interaction related to theme of the 3rd 01SJ Biennial, Build Your Own World.
