This two-day symposium will examine the interconnectedness of ideas and actions and the current relationships between art-making, science and ecology. A group of distinguished artists, scientists and policy-makers will present and examine case studies of collaborative environmental art projects. Symposium participants will be invited to help advance this crossdisciplinary enterprise through their active involvement in the dialogue.

The GLOBAL WARNING symposium is organized by ZER01: The Art and Technology Network, City of San Jose Public Art Program and CADRE Laboratory for New Media at San Jose State University in collaboration with LEONARDO/ISAST, and with additional support from the Montalvo Arts Center. It will be held on September 16 and 17, 2010, in conjunction with the 3rd 01SJ Biennial in San Jose, CA.
