changing nature of museums and artists in technological times

"This ground-breaking project is not just a show of 'art about technology' or 'high-tech art and design,'" notes the SFMOMA Director David A. Ross.

"Rather, it will present artists, architects and designers whose work is carried out self-consciously in the shadow of the digital age, which is bringing new ideas and working processes to the studio, new exhibition practices to the gallery and offering radically new ways to connect creators and their potential audiences."

"The play-on-numbers of the launch date and title underlines the changing nature of museums and artists as they and the rest of society reflect upon life in technological times."

think texts

"Throughout the exhibition Think Texts will provide critical and philosophical commentaries on issues raised by the art and its connections to larger questions of digital technologies in the contemporary world. Embedded within the exhibition --on gallery walls, the Web site andflat-panel displays interspersed throughout the galleries-- the texts will help knit together the diverse creative approaches of the works on view. The texts will also appear in the accompanying 01.01.01 publication, which will act as an innovative "user's guide" to the exhibition, with a design integrally linked to the online and on-site exhibition concept."

ways to navigate the reshaped information landscape

Artists include Erik Adigard, Kevin Appel, *Asymptote Architecture* (Hani Rashid, Lise Anne Couture), Heike Baranowsky, Annette Begerow, Jeremy Blake, Rebeca Bollinger, Lee Bul, Janet Cardiff, Alison Craighead and Jon Thomson, Char Davies, Décosterd & Rahm, Droog Design, Brian Eno, Entropy8Zuper! (Aureia Harvey and MichaŽl Samyn), Jochem Hendricks, Hu Jie Ming, Craig Kalpakjian, John Maeda, Tatsuo Miyajima, Mark Napier, Roxy Paine, Matthew Ritchie, Adam Ross, Karin Sander, Sarah Sze and Shirley Tse.

sitestreaming: online tours by artists

This series is among the site's most innovative features. Throughout the winter, each of 010101's online artists will appear at the Museum for livedemonstrations of their sites. After the presentations, new Web-streaming technologies link the artists' recorded remarks to real-time, online tours of their work, enabling visitors to experience an artist-guided tour of each commission.
