Global climate change has far reaching ramifications, and as a result the world as we know it will not be the world of 100 or perhaps even 10 years. Armed with an awareness of how our actions impact the environment, how will this affect our ideas about who we are? This was the question posed by CADRE New Media Lab at San Jose State University in an open call to artists earlier this summer.

From entries all over the world, six finalists were chosen. Leading artist Andrea Polli, seen at 01SJ 2008, will be exhibiting her work Sonic Antarctica.   We are also excited to feature the work Markers and 150,000-year Journey by Xavier Cortada. Other works exploring the poles include Jerome Gueneau and Catherine RannouPhil BoissonnetAndrea Juan, and Erika Blumenfeld. The jurors for the exhibit include surveillance artist Hasan Elaji, new media artist Robin Lasser and writer/curator Annick Bureaud.

Beginning August 7, Polar Identity can be experienced both online at SWITCH the online journal for art and technology, as well as at WORKS/San Jose. Throughout the event there will be public lectures and panels sponsored by ZERO1.

The Markers (above) by Xavier Cortada (South Pole, 2007) will be featured at the Polar Identity exhibit.
