Gate Pages :: April 03: Alexander Galloway


Alexander R. Galloway is an artist and computer programmer. As the founding member of the Radical Software Group (RSG), he is the creator of Carnivore (, a networked surveillance tool based on the notorious FBI software of the same name. The New York Times has called the work "conceptually sharp, visually compelling and completely attuned to the political moment."

Recently Alex published a DVD (with Cory Arcangel) titled "Low Level All-Stars" which presents the largely unknown history of video graffiti from the Commodore 64 computer. Alex's first book, "PROTOCOL, or, How Control Exists After Decentralization," will be published later this year by The MIT Press.
