Jerry Galle’s work is all about the sometimes difficult relationship between digital technology and contemporary culture. He uses recent software and digital imagery in an unconventional way and stresses the role of technology in our daily life and artistic creation. His work explores the way how technological images and texts can produce new meaning. For Galle these ‘techno-texts’ and ‘techno-images’ can be geometrical or symbolic, playful or dead serious.

Digital doubt plays an important role in his work. He encounters this theme by the binary structure of the computer, meaning the 0 and the 1, the ‘yes’ and the ‘no’ of our contemporary technology. In a society where doubt is considered to be an unproductive quality, technology with its compulsive efficiency, has a pervasive effect on our social behavior. But when digital doubt is injected into a computer system, strange things happen.

Recently Galle explores the use of language that is co-created with artificially intelligent algorithms. The mediation of the world through ever circulating and replicating texts that are both bot and human generated, have had a dramatic impact on conceptions of politics, culture, economics and language itself.

His work has been shown in Muhka, Bozar, Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, British Film Institute, Wiels, International Film Festival Rotterdam, EMAF, International Film Festival Hamburg, Museum Dr. Guislain, Ars Electronica among others.

 

Jerry Galle is affiliated to KASK School of Arts University College Ghent as artistic researcher.
