Taking its title from the two components of binary code, ONES AND ZEROS presents work by a group of contemporary artists from the Bay Area who are reflecting on the digital revolution and its infiltration into our lives. While many artists have used digital technology and the Internet as a creative tool, artists Aaron Finnis, Charles Gute, Matt Lipps, Sanaz Mazinani, Simon Pyle, Stephanie Syjuco, and Margo Wolowiec create work that reflects critically on the condition of living in the computer age. These meditations, which take shape through a range of media, deflect attention away from technology as apparatus in order to focus on technology as subject. Curated by Jeanne Gerrity and Amy Owen.
