Bio: Jeremy Blake (October 4, 1971 – July 17, 2007) was an American digital artist and painter. His work included projected DVD installations, Type C prints, and collaborative film projects. Blake also created the painted abstract hallucination scenes in the 2002 Paul Thomas Anderson film Punch Drunk Love, and contributed artwork and video for Beck's album Sea Change. Blake was also involved in creating and commissioning a soundtrack album called The Forty Million Dollar Beatnik with Neil Landstrumm and Mike Fellows in 2000 on Scandinavia Records and Pork Salad Press to accompany an LA drawings/script show by Blake of the same title.

His work is held in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Blake was the boyfriend of filmmaker, cultural critic and pioneering video game creator Theresa Duncan. In February 2007, the couple moved from Los Angeles to New York City, and resided in the East Village. On July 10, 2007, Blake found Duncan dead, the result of suicide. On July 17, 2007, Blake was reported missing off New York's Rockaway Beach. According to news accounts, a woman called 911 to report that she saw a man walking out into the ocean. Blake's clothes and wallet were reportedly found along with a suicide note that referred to Duncan. BIO
