The name “Silicon Valley” usually evokes tech booms and electronic empires. But, Silicon Valley offers a depth beyond this that is frequently unseen. In partnership with ZERO1, SPUR and Hipstamatic invite you to go behind the digital veil with some of the Bay Area’s top photographers. Their interpretation of the theme of the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial, Seeking Silicon Valley, proposes that contemporary art practices can reimagine the idea, the place and the experience of Silicon Valley.

Co-presented by:
