A collection of drawings from 1999-2015

PROJECT 1: THE SELFIE DRAWINGS :: 2015
“The Selfie Drawings,” is a collection of 52 digital drawings that I completed over 52 weeks – a year-long project in which I performed “the self” through digital drawings from January to December 2015. These drawings informed a video installation project A Subject Self-Defined, that was realized as a solo exhibition of 4K video at Transfer Gallery in January 2016 (installation shots & video works here: carlagannis.com/blog/prints/subjectselfdefined).

In conjunction with this exhibition, I have produced a serialized augmented reality “book object,” a collaboration with UNBOX’s #BehindTheFace project and Blippar AR technologies.

Using the Blippar app, readers can hover over a static drawing and “blipp” it. A new dynamic experience then takes place in the screen of their phone. Over the course of 52 weeks beginning in March 2016, readers can check the Blip Log each week to find out which new page is activated. This collection of Gannis’ digital drawings includes a critical essay on the work written by Dorothy Santos. More info on the book here: theselfiedrawings.com
