The ZERO1 Urban Screen transformed a blank façade of 300 South First Street into a projection platform for cultural exchange and connecting communities. The screenings networked San Jose to projects and locations from around the world, that ranged in format from popular films, to experimental video by emerging artists, to interactive projection projects, to live performance.
Artistic License in Silicon Valley presents a range of perceptions of technology in global digital culture created by internationally known contemporary artists Michael Najjar, Sophie Kahn, Maurice Benayoun, Scott Draves, Multi-touch Barcelona, Ursula Endlicher, and Mark Amerika.
The ZERO1 Biennial Urban Screen at 300 S. 1st Street, was commissioned by ZERO1 and the San Jose Public Art Program, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, 1st ACT Silicon Valley and the San Jose Downtown Association.

The ZERO1 Garage launched on October 27, 2012
We Write This To You From the Distant Future, a multi-media exhibition of work by visionary creators in the arts and sciences, focuses on a future world both imagined and possible to build.
We Write This To You From The Distant Future was presented at the Empire Drive-In, at 435 S. Market Street – a large-scale multimedia installation and platform built out of used and salvaged materials. In its simplest description it is a drive-in movie theater made out of wrecked cars. The 01SJ Future Films program in the Drive-In included short films, features, revivals, and live cinema events. At the center of the project were 25 cars rescued from a San Jose auto wrecker. Audiences were able to climb into cars to watch film programs throughout the festival. Low-power radio beamed stereo audio direct to each car, just like the real drive-in. Moviegoers had snacks at the confection stand and amusement in the playground. The installation was built indoors in San Jose’s massive South Hall. No sunsets, but no mosquitoes either.

Victory Park, Dallas, Texas, USA, was among Streaming Museum’s launch partners on January 29, 2008, when locations on 7 continents symbolically exhibited at precisely the same time Good Morning Mr. Orwell by Nam June Paik. Victory Plaza is under redevelopment, and the screen program is not currently in operation.
Victory Park was the first large-scale, outdoor digital arts gallery and entertainment center in the world. Through its arts program, Victory Park provided opportunities for digital artists from across Texas and around the world to work and experiment with the finest video display technology available. Eleven large, high-resolution LED screens moved along horizontal tracks to allow for a myriad of configurations and motion possibilities with high fidelity sound and an extensive theatrical lighting system heightened the experience to an immersive level.
