A self-proclaimed twenty-first century arts nonprofit, ZERO1 marries art and technology through the ZERO1 Garage, a think tank for research and development, and the ZERO1 Biennial. From their perspective, art is more than just aesthetically pleasing—it’s an instrument to inform and construct a personal world.
The start of this year saw the launch of ZERO1 Fellows, five year-long collaborations between ZERO1’s network of interdisciplinary personnel and a community of tech experts. Currently, they’ve teamed up with Adobe to search for artists to work with a group of scientists and engineers in their Creative Technologies Lab. (Adobe demonstrated its appreciation of tech-and-art fusion in 2010 with the launch of its Museum of Digital Media.) Candidates will pursue an original idea for some tech-based product (an app, a Web page, a physical device, etc.) that addresses current Adobe problems or facilitates the use of Adobe products in new ways.
