Microinterview with Kristen Gallerneaux @ The Believer Issue #131
Kristen Gallerneaux is the curator of communications and information technology at the Henry Ford Museum, in Dearborn, Michigan. Of her work, Sarah Rose Sharp wrote the following:
Over the years, Gallerneaux has been engaged in prodigious research, often in connection to objects in the Henry Ford Museum’s massive and highly eclectic collection, which was founded in 1929 and was catalyzed by Ford’s interest in stories of technology, innovation, and everyday life in America. Some of these objects include a radio used to attempt communication with Mars; the Telimco radio, built by sci-fi publisher Hugo Gernsback; and the first transistors from Bell Labs. A few years ago, Gallerneaux compiled aspects of her professional research on dead technologies, her independent art practice, and her personal interest in paranormal experiences and object-oriented ontology into a collection of writings, High Static, Dead Lines, which was published by MIT Press in July 2018.
