Jerry is a self-taught designer from Mexico City currently based in Brooklyn. She was introduced to a Quadra 660 AV at an early age, which led to a career in the visual effects industry. She spent years working on corporate projects until she was granted a fellowship at Eyebeam in 2002 to pursue a more thoughtful approach to video post-production. In 2006 she returned to Eyebeam as a senior fellow in the Production Lab, where her practice evolved to embrace code, electronics and waste to create low-tech objects to survive the end of the world. Jerry is also one-half Forays.
Other Options, a traveling exhibition and program series that began in October 2007, investigated ways in which artists are dealing with the current climate of support for cultural production. By increasingly incorporating new models of resource allocation, community building, funding structures and forms of exchange as part of their artistic production, these artists are creating new possibilities for the role of contemporary art in an everyday context.
The exhibition in Eyebeam's Commons space included work by Forays, Josh Greene, Material Exchange, Mikey Merrill, Phil Orr/Ryan Thompson, ReTool, Joanna Spitzner, and Geraldine Juárez. Other Options was curated by InCUBATE.
