Doxa Preview of Sky-Fi at ZERO1
Rebar has created two projects for the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial in San Jose, California. Here’s a preview of Sky-Fi, a collaboration with architect Christopher Haas. Sky-Fi is a streetscape canopy that spans S. 1st Street in San Jose’s SoFa district. The tensioned lines are made of EL wire wrapped in a white mesh textile and are suspended among the light posts, palms and jacaranda trees that line the block. Sky-Fi stretches streams of light back and forth across the street, its filaments converging at the ZERO1 Garage; the exhibition hub for public programs.
The Biennial’s theme, Seeking Silicon Valley, proposes that contemporary art practice can re-imagine the idea, the place, and the experience of Silicon Valley. Please join us at the exhibition opening on September 13, 2012 at the ZERO1 Garage.
