Zeros Ones brings together 14 artists using video, sound and performance to question power struggles in technology. 22 years after Donna Harraway's publication of A Cyborg Manifesto which launched the Cyberfeminist movement, this show looks at its relevance today in work that celebrates and questions science and technology.

Broken narratives, multiple identities, consumerism, low-fi, CGI, techno, retro, resourced, revamped, personal stories, and the new aesthetic are all present within the featured artists work. These artists come from various European cities and much of the interaction between them takes place over the internet through Skype, email, social networking, and video-file sharing.
