The 2010 01SJ Biennial, which opened this week in San Jose, Calif., in the Silicon Valley, asks artists, engineers, and designers to hack the world, building and rebuilding--physically and conceptually--with ideas and innovation.
With a DIY ethos that asks questions through art and offers answers through design and engineering, the 2010 01SJ Biennial, which runs from September 16-19, will feature hundreds of artworks along with performances and events, all engaging the future with concepts in art and design.
Artist Natalie Jeremijenko's xAirport project, a 150-foot zip line above an artificial marsh created in Downtown San Jose, models a system design intended to address the role of wetlands in our urban environments.
Taking advantage of the space necessary for metro airports, Jeremijenko playfully strategizes methods for environmental integration into our world, producing symbiotic diversity in living environments.
