Patrick Gallagher & Chris Klapper

We are a husband and wife team.  In 2010, we embarked on our first direct collaboration with our hugely successful installation, ‘Symphony in D Minor’; a self contained thunderstorm, which is part of the permanent collection of Hydropolis Museum in Wroclaw, Poland.

Our work is multimedia and large scale. Our subject matter is driven by specific projects, environments and experiences. Overall, we look to explore new technologies and to use them to express immense ideas on a human scale.  Employing sound, sculpture, video, projection mapping, composites and digital new media, we look to explore every expressive opportunity that presents itself.

One of our recent projects focused on the concept of time and duration, where during a month long performance we combined the ancient practice of sand painting with contemporary information visualization employing GPS and data mapping. 

Our collaboration has brought each of our strengths, personal expertise and vision together in a way that accelerates each project to develop into stronger and more ambitious territories.
