Jeremy Turner, 536 Gallery, Canada
Jeremy Turner (b.1974 Victoria B.C., Canada - Lives in Vancouver). Turner is the founder and co-curator of the 536 Arts collective in Vancouver, Canada and co-curator for the Digital Pocket Gallery. In 2000, he developed the 536 Pocket Gallery concept which was inspired by an exchange of email correspondences with New York based artist Karen Roff dating back to 1997. As a result of correspondences like these, he named a gallery he ran in 1999 out of his apartment with Sang Nguyen in Vancouver called "The Pocket Gallery". He has a BA in Art History and Music Composition from the University of Victoria.

Since 1998, Turner has been creating, researching, and developing new virtual worlds through found software architectures, web-site templates, manufactured chat-rooms, modified interviews, revised literary text documents, compact audio discs and customized interactive kiosks. He usually prefer to collaborate with other artists rather than keep conceptual indulgences to himself. Formalistic explorations aside, he feels that the most rewarding creative experiences emerge from playful socializing.
