About

Chris Klapper & Patrick Gallagher

Klapper & Gallagher are a husband and wife team. In 2011, they embarked on their first direct collaboration with a hugely successful installation, Symphony in D Minor, a self-contained thunderstorm, which is now part of the permanent collection at Hydropolis Museum in Wroclaw, Poland.

Their work is multimedia and multidimensional. Their subject matter is driven by specific projects, environments, and experiences. Overall, they look to explore new technologies and to use them to express immense ideas on a human scale. In their work, they employ sound, sculpture, video, projection mapping, composites and digital new media to best express meaning within specific concepts.

Over the past six years, their collaboration has brought together their individual strengths, personal expertise, and vision in a way that accelerates each project into more ambitious territories.

One of their primary collaborative series, Dataatadata, concentrates on the aesthetic and conceptual theme of the beauty of raw information. They began to explore this as a subject and are unpacking the abstract connections between selected information and how it is absorbed.

Through this exploration, they are uncovering immense concepts hidden within seemingly esoteric data that express deep philosophical and existential ideas tied together in what they've come to know and appreciate as the poetry of numbers.

Dataatadata led them to develop several large projects centered around the concept of infinity and infinite sequences. Within these endless sets, a current series "Real Numbers," focuses on the literal expression of mathematically significant systems and their inherent beauty. "Real Numbers" showcases transcendental and transfinite numbers such as Pi, the Fibonacci Sequence, the Golden Ratio(Phi) and other infinite sets bound within raw materials such as cement, steel, white oak and paper.

The theme presents as an ultra-minimalist aesthetic meant to be austere and simple, with the subject pared down to its purest form of expression.

While pondering the infinite, one sees the everyday, humble materials, and the touch of the human hand.
