Zer01ne 2021 - “Bina”

Zero one is a digital arts festival that sits on the intersection between art, technology, myths and magic. We strive to develop a language that will make it possible to imagine and establish the foundations of the emerging digital world. Using Artistic expression to examine ancient knowledge systems to evolving ones, and alternative propositions to infuse myths and concepts to reformulate our current digital poetics. To this end, we put the spotlight on digital creativity, and examine through tools of art, experience and research, the history of the future.

Bina - 2021

Welcome to 2022. We have exited the desert of the real, and are spiraling down the deep mycelium realms of the digital rainforests. The pandemic has pushed us deeper into virtual worlds; code is all around us, and is seeping more and more into the fabric of our life. New coded structures of being are created on a daily basis. The ability to relay information in immense quantities at ridiculous speeds operate as massive bridges. This immense collection of zeros and ones require a new set of tools: machine learning, deep learning, neural networks and evolutionary algorithms - artificial intelligence or, as we choose to call it, “Bina”.

What is intelligence? What are its boundaries? and why is it artificial?

After all, like Oroborus, the snake that eats its tail, “artificial” intelligence exists in a reciprocal, dialectical relationship with its human creators. In this year’s Zero.One, under the headline “Bina” , we will take a closer look at the development of human intelligence alongside that of the organisms around us and through this lens observe the developing computerized one. Seeking to examine this complex relationship, and not necessarily from the anthropocentric paradigm of thought, and offer new observations and interpretations, drawing inspiration from ancient wisdoms and traditions alongside evolving contemporary concepts.

This year’s edition, “Bina”, will be a hybrid, creating content for both the virtual and physical realms.

The festival will take place this year between December 27-31, and will operate in a hybrid format that combines virtual space alongside live events at the Hansen House and the Tower of David Museum.
