TERMINAL ZERO ONE
Digital Art Exhibition at Toronto Pearson International Airport
Terminal 1 – Level 3 Terrace, Departures Level
July 1, 2007 – May 5, 2008
Terminal Zero One (T01) is a site-specific digital art exhibition of five projects exploring themes of contemporary air travel and the architecture of airports. Airports are networks, information is increasingly networked, the T01 exhibit examines people as data, motion as trajectories and the symbiosis of virtual and actual.
The public is invited to experience the projects via touch sensitive
screens, SMS text messaging, a webcam and as a controlled 3D avatar
navigating through a simulated terminal. Track real-time flight activity
originating from Pearson International Airport through a live data
stream. Reinterpret the familiar by manipulating universal airport
symbols and flight information screens. Engage in dialogue about controversial
issues of international security and human rights. T01 is a portal
into digital artworks that reflect the technology, movement and connectivity
of the contemporary international airport - a transitory space where
notions of borders, time and place are temporarily suspended.
