Major Festival Attractions Include:
DJ Spooky, Terra Nova: The Antarctic Suite
Paul D. Miller, AKA DJ Spooky, the New York-based hip-hop recording and multi-media artist, will present his next major work. The Antarctic Suite will be an acoustic portrait of a rapidly changing continent. It transforms Miller’s encounter with the harsh, dynamic landscape into multimedia portraits with music composed from the different geographies that make up the land mass.
On-the-Edge Block Party
On Friday, June 6, from 6 p.m. until midnight, the various arts museums and galleries who are partnering with ZER01 will collaborate to create a block party happening of contemporary music, street performances, gustatory eats, and interactive, on-the-edge art installations with more than 100 artists participating throughout the evening, all the way until midnight!
The future of film is eclectic. Future Films will present a broad range of innovative works in the realm of the moving image, from the second installment of Toni Dove’s heralded interactive sci-fi trilogy, Spectropia, to Late Fragment, a multi-narrative film from the Canadian Film Center, which recently premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.
Third Rotunda Lighting Project
World-renowned Australian artist Craig Walsh has been commissioned to create the third City Hall Rotunda lighting for ZER01. Walsh is primarily interested in hybrid, site-specific projects and the exploration of alternative contexts for contemporary art. At the first Biennial 01SJ festival, Akira Hasegawa presented the first Rotunda lighting, Digital
Kakejiku. Camille Utterback’s interactive Abundance project was presented in September 2007.
