The C5 Quest for Success
Enter to play the C5 Quest for Success during the ZeroOne San Jose/ISEA 2006
August 9-12, 2006
The C5 Quest for Success is an invited project for ZeroOne San Jose: A Global Festival of Art on the Edge. The ZeroOne San Jose Festival will transform San Jose into the North American epicenter of art and digital culture from August 7th to the 13th, showcasing the world’s most innovative contemporary artists.
Quest for Success is curatorial selection as urban game, testing competitors¹ analysis, management, and cooperative decision making skills – traits needed for success in Silicon Valley. The grand prize is a six to twelve week residency at the Montalvo Arts Center co-sponsored with C5 and a Silicon Valley corporate partner – a great opportunity for the right player with the right project pitch. Contestants navigate the streets of San Jose exploring GPS controlled narratives in an attempt to locate the C5 Corporate Limo. Once there, you just might have the opportunity to pitch your proposal to a panel of distinguished experts. A single winner from each evening’s competition then advances to the final round on Saturday, August 12th. Three finalists representing TALK, DEMO, PERFORM ‘present’ their pitch live on-stage to an audience of thousands during the ZeroOne San Jose culminating celebration.
