CARLA GANNIS

‘My work examines the narrativity of 21st century representational technologies and questions the hybrid nature of identity, where virtual and real embodiments of self diverge and intersect. I feel akin to past and contemporary artists and writers who uncannily deconstruct rigid notions of reality and perception. The extension of this sensibility with computer-based applications is only natural to me as a reflection upon the Digital Age in which we all coexist.’

Carla Gannis

Carla Gannis, originally from Oxford, North Carolina, today lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
