BRAD GALLAGHER’s practice revolves around writing, coding, sound and new media with a focus on how information as a material intersects these different mediums. He has always been interested in how simple rules give rise to complex behavior, how order arises from chaos and how systems with many interacting parts exhibit self-organization. As an artist he draws inspiration from and directly leverage these principles along with chance to create interactive, dynamic, and emergent content. Using a data-driven approach, he reflects these practices back into his traditional writing, creating a feedback loop of influence amongst the mediums of his work.
